A live, interactive talkback will follow shortly after the premiere. The talkback will be streamed below.
Apart from chronicling the last days of his exile in Guam and exploring the conditions which spurred him to return to his homeland, Ang Huling Lagda ni Apolinario Mabini proves to still be relevant 8 years after its premiere at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater (WMGT) in 2014. In time for the upcoming Philippine elections on 9 May 2022, Ang Huling Lagda ni Apolinario Mabini’s ultimate message of the importance of one’s service to the country serves as a timely reminder to the Filipino electorate that the narrative of the country in the next years lies in their votes.
Ang Huling Lagda ni Apolinario Mabini will be premiered on 5 May 2022 on the UP Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts Facebook Page and on the DSCTA UP Diliman YouTube Channel followed by a talkback with Floy Quintos (Librettist), Krina Cayabyab (Composer), and Prof. Dexter M. Santos (Director) to be moderated by Asst. Prof. Marvin Ray C. Olaes.
