Cherie Gil comes back to theater in PETA's Arbol de Fuego

After a successful season opening with Rak of Aegis and another original musical FnL, Philippine Educational Theater Association takes on a classic based on Anton Chekov's Cherry Orchard. And more reason to see it is with premiere actress in all media, TV, movies and theater, no other than Ms. Cherie Gil.
Cherie Gil plays the middle-aged matriarch Enriquetta Jardeleza-Sofronio, coming from an aristocratic family in Negros Occidental, who is forced to fly back from Madrid to sell her family estate to pay off for the huge family debts. The Jardeleza’s throw party after lavish party, reminiscing their opulent past amidst their depleting wealth.

Award-winning writer Rody Vera, and world-renowned New York based designer-director Loy Arcenas work together for the second time in this Chekhov classic. The two have collaborated on the production Three Sisters, and have done so for film as well in the critically acclaimed Cinemalaya entry, NiƱo.

Alongside Gil is Urian best actress awardee Angeli Bayani, British Independent Film Award nominee Jake Macapagal, Bembol Roco, Anna Luna, Leo Rialp, Raffy Tejada, Riki Benedicto and many others.
Arbol de Fuego opens on February 20, 2015 with shows from Fridays to Sundays, 3:00pm and 8:00pm at the PETA Theater Center, No. 5 Eymard Drive, New Manila, Quezon City. For more information, contact PETA at 725 6244 or 0917 5765400 or email at
