One night in a desert where the moon is in full, a new born baby swallows the heart of a banana tree. Time passes and the baby grows up with the help of a dog, a cat and a wild boar who stands as her mother. Away from the city, the girl lives happily until she encounters a man that will change her life, introducing her to both love and pain. In a situation where there are dirty secrets everywhere, will love overcome pain?
ANG UNANG ASWANG is a story of love, failure, abuse and pretension. This play will leave you questions of who is really bad, and what is the basis of good. From the era of the Spanish occupation in the Philippines, this is a story that mirrors the culture of the Philippines and it has been passed on from generation to generation.
With a mission to inspire, connect and uplift the community’s spirit toward arts and culture, PUP Sining-Lahi Polyrepertory, is proud to bring to the stage Mr. Rody Vera’s UNANG ASWANG. Sining-Lahi Polyrepertory has been serving the Polytechnic University of the Philippines for more than three decades now.
