Nick Joaquin's May Day Eve Play at UA&P

ViARE, a student theater organization, of the University of Asia and the Pacific will be staging Nick Joaquin's "May Day Eve" as adapted for the stage and directed by two time Palanca Award Winner, Juan Ekis.

It tells a story of a family where love and bitterness is passed on by Agueda and Badoy's encounter one May eve in front of the mirror. There they saw their future spouses in the form of a witch and a devil by means of a ritual; their hearts were eaten and their blood, drank. They fell in love but their love never met. That is the curse they brought to the generations after them: to fall in love yet live in bitterness.
