Bukas Na, a play that focuses on the several dilemmas of the Filipino youth, will be staged at the 5F Theater of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) Design + Arts Campus, from Wednesday, November 15, 2023.
The story centers on a group of friends who embarked on an adventure to search for self-worth, purpose, and love. With the hope of bringing them good fortune, they invested their savings in an alcohol-induced decision to launch a dropshipping business.
However, the new entrepreneurs soon discovered hardships and experienced the difficulties in the online marketplace, which eventually affected their private lives and even, sad to say, the camaraderie of their team.
The two-hour production was written by Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awardee Jay Crisostomo IV and directed by DLS-CSB Theater Arts graduating student Jack Denzel Gaza.
It features performances by student-actors Coleen Nika Aldana, Jang Baniasia, Kyle Confesor, Sam Dahilan, Ysabel Suaybaguio, and Ethan Wong.
It is produced by Odd One Out Productions, a group of young thespians from the Theater Arts Program of the Benilde School of Arts, Culture, and Performance (SACP).
Bukas Na will be on premiere on Wednesday, November 15, with shows at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., followed by performances on Thursday to Saturday, November 16 to 18, with screenings at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. The last schedule will be on Tuesday, November 21, at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.
All shows will be at the 5F Theater of the Benilde Design + Arts Campus, 950 Pablo Ocampo Street, Malate, Manila.
Tickets are available at P350.
