Theater House of Black, in cooperation with The Philippine Mental Health Association and the Power Mac Center Spotlight, opens its theater season with its maiden production this coming October with a material devised by Carlos Palanca winner, Jay Crisostomo IV and CK Bautista, #14 LEANDRO ROAD. It’s a Filipino adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Fall Of The House Of Usher” which is set on the dark chilly outskirts of the Mountain Province.

#14 LEANDRO ROAD is a horror story, which blurs the line between the real world and the supernatural. It follows Ed/Edna Ramos, a real estate agent, who is invited by Rudy/Pilar Laperal, a grade school friend she hasn’t seen for almost 20 years, to come and visit the latter’s house. As soon as Ed/Edna arrives, he/she finds out that Rudy/Pilar lives with two other people: his/her ill brother/sister and the family doctor, Dra. Lita Dumas. As the days go by, the house guest finds out that both siblings are suffering from a mental illness. At the same time, both are keeping a secret that has been buried all these years.

Male and female actors shine in dual roles as Harry David and Gold Villar portray Ed/Edna, Migui Moreno and Mosang play Rudy/Pilar, Gry Gimena and Ahlex Leyva play Anton/Anna, Patricia Ismael and Marife Necesito alternate as Dra. Lita Dumas, while Peewee O’Hara plays Donya Victorina, and May Bayot is Consuelo. Jay Crisostomo IV directs.

The production staff also features skillful talents with Diego Melad as Technical Director, Bambi Bucao as Lights Design and Direction, Vincent Lim does the Music Design, Alex Congbalay on Set Design, and the Closet, Nica Santos and Sophia Pre do Costume Designs and Prosthetics respectively. Stage management by Nicole Herrera and Justin Ellamil, and John Carlo Salud manages the production.
