i just saw Tanghalang Pilipino's WALANG KUKURAP and i had to admit that it was very appropriate in the current Philippine political situation.
though it was set in the smallest government unit, the barangay, the issues tackled were of national interest. hunger for position, political dynasty, drugs, gambling and forms of national problems like out of school youth, corruption, illegal logging, were closely twined together helping audience realize the current situation that we're living in for decades.

it was also subliminally attacking all current politicians. well, they should be very ashamed if they see this production. taking over the bureaucracy for their own benefits. cases may not be true as presented but it enlightens the people on making the good choices in the elections. and when a certain person is in power, instead of giving in to the authority, we should also be very watchful in their actions.

bloody is one description to this play as Layeta Bucoy's trademark. scenes with squirting liquid fill the stage and i even got to experience it. and you'll also know how such words can be very powerful to affect and change one's principle.

Tanghalang Pilipino's WALANG KUKURAP is currently playing at Tanghalang Huseng Batute at the CCP Complex, Pasay City.
