The YC Buddies are big fans of Artistang Artlets, the official theater guild of the UST Faculty of Arts and Letters. We make it a point to always watch their plays, even when we’re not required by our professors.
Imba, written by Jem Ferrer, directed by Jihad Mambuay, and (ohnoes, how do you translate “sa pamamahala ni”??) Karla Angela Tajon, was shown at the Rizal Conference Hall in our building.
It was sort of a Valentine’s play, since the theme was love (of course). To be completely honest, even though the past AA plays I watched have been great, I wasn’t expecting much from this other than the usual clichés you see in movies. I mean, seriously. It was Valentine’s Day! I thought AA would show a frilly, fluffy love story about unrequited love and all that overused Hollywood rom-com bullcrap. Thank god I was wrong.
