WAR IS COMING—in the form of a chess game. While the white pieces count their losses, and the black pieces prepare to mount another attack, hidden from their sight is an impending invasion.
A power-hungry empire of serpents is about to strike. This plot twist suddenly proves a game changer for both white and black pieces to start relying on their own instincts rather than their collective rules. Little do they know that the law of their land reigns supreme.
UP SIKAT’s 15th anniversary production presents how the play of power is concomitant with the power of play. In staging WARLA, we are toying with the idea that politics is merely a game; hence, we all have a part to play. This game, albeit make-believe, is as real as it gets—especially when the political imaginary fuels realpolitik. After all, isn’t it all just a game?
Whether it’s just a game or not, we must always play our part.
Catch it on August 25, 7pm at the Ang Bahay ng Alumni of UP Diliman.
