I always wanted to watch Virgin Labfest, CCP's showcase of unpublished works in theater in a non-traditional manner. I was told that it was only done in the corridors like a reading in front of audience who don't mind watching it in the crowd. This is an example of low-budgeted quality theater performance that is very raw and fresh.
One of the reasons of the Labfest is to showcase works that are not able to be produced due to lack of budget for a traditional theater production. This is why most productions are not affordable. Pioneer Insurance sponsored the recent Virgin Labfest and they are going to bring it to the campuses.
The Virgin Labfest Campus Tour is part contest and part theater performance. There will be an original play-writing contest open for the students only. Only those who are enrolled are entitled to join. Entries must be a one-act play in Tagalog, English or Tag-lish depending on the author. Entries can be submitted starting September 1 until November 6, 2015. The script should feature a story of hope.

Part of the tour is to showcase some works in selected campuses: September 1 in Miriam College, September 23 in Lyceum Of The Philippines University, September 23 in University of Santo Tomas, October 5 in University of Makati, and October 13 in De la Salle- College of St. Benilde. The show is free of charge and it's open to public and it's first-come, first serve basis.
