ENTABLADO reinterprets R.I.P. as a satire play that tackles the transformation of the Philippine performing arts. It is about a theater group rehearsing for a performance while struggling against the situation of their company, which is losing to a rising form of performing arts.

The staging will emphasize on the shifts of the different forms – from a komedya to a sarswela and finally to a film shooting in the end. Within the play are commentaries on the English language, shift of the colonial forces in the Philippines and the morphing process that the Philippine performing arts has gone through and is still going through.

This story is framed by an intermedio of scenes from "La India Elegante y el Negrito Amante" that features the courtship of two clowns.

Amazing show! A must-watch! Special mention to the lead girl of the play, Ichay (the picture outside the theater said her name is Anna Reyes). Mahusay ang pagganap! Magaling na produksiyon.

Watching it today makes me want to watch it again and again! The two clowns were hilarious and the director Colas as played by Mr. Almonte had a very commanding presence onstage. The lead actress Ichay, played by Ms. Reyes showed a powerful range of acting skill. The ensemble just made the whole show amazing and unsettling. ONE OF A KIND.
