August Osage County is the second production of Repertory Phils. this season. For the first time, they invited Chris Millado of Tanghalang Pilipino to direct the play for Rep. He described it as a Pandora's Box because it is terrifyingly real to all especially Filipinos.
You will relate to the experiences like the Filipino families you see in soap operas. But August Osage County will show you how a telenovela should be done. Watching it will be like a roller coaster horror ride.
Although there was no excerpt shown, it was already clear from them that it will be really interesting. There will be lots of swearing and choreographed fights. You may not like it but the story will either transform you or you will see yourself in that situation.
Chris Millado agreed to direct this because it fit his specific genre that he wants in a story. Baby Barredo returns to stage in this production along with Ms. Saigon alumni Pinky Amador. August Osage County runs in from February 21 to March 16 at Onstage, Greenbelt 1.
