We are searching for (4) males and (4) females to play lead in the upcoming stage production of BERDE. The said production will be stage in August 2012. The play is a fusion of film and theater.
Same sex relationships in this predominantly Christian nation are despised even today. Those who are seeking blessings for same-gender marriages only end up being hurt all the more by public scrutiny. And that love—yes love that knows no bounds—is tagged as malady, and them lovers as fornicators. This is the premise of BERDE, a stage production about homosexuality and family. Edwin and Butch are two seemingly different people but almost of the same situation, where insecurity and loneliness isolates them from the “normal” world. On the course of the revelation of each scene, one will be moved to the obvious which is not the uniqueness of the relationship but the truthfulness of the situation of the Filipino family and Filipino community in general. The play will tackle diversity, family relationships, and hope.
