entry arrow12:11 AM | Our Lady of Arlegui



Milflores Publishing is coming out with Chris Martinez's award-winning play Our Lady of Arlegui. (Anything from the author of the plays Welcome to IntelStar and Last Order sa Penguin, and the director of the film 100, is always interesting.) The play is about a comedic encounter between a Christian film geek and a Muslim pirate DVD/VCD vendor in Arlegui, Quiapo, who both suddenly find themselves enduring a raid by the men of the Optical Media Board. I saw the premiere of this play when it was staged in the 2007 Palanca Awards (with the great Irma Adlawan as the DVD vendor), and it is a genuinely funny and intelligent piece. (Funny moment I still remember: the film geek asking for a copy of Francous Truffaut's The 400 Blows -- and then being given a pornographic video, hehehe.)
