The Virgin Labfest’s (VLF) Ang Pag-uulyanin ni Olivia Mendoza is now streaming on CCP’s YouTube channel!

Written by Rolin Migyuel Obina, the play was staged at last year’s VLF, featuring Edna Vida Froilan as Olivia, Nonoy Froilan as Andres, Celeste Legaspi as Julia, Crispin Pineda as Cesar, and Erlinda Villalobos as Lika.

The story follows Olivia, a 75-year old woman in a home for the elderlies, who keeps her dark past to herself in fear of losing the hard-fought relationship she has with the man she loves. When Alzheimer’s Disease suddenly reveals her deepest secrets, everything she holds dear falls apart, leaving a fractured memory she might never mend back again.
