This time, it will be utilizing the main theater venue in Circuit Makati, with Santos and the audience both occupying the stage. There will be a total of 300 seats, priced at (inclusive of online convenience fee) P2,160 for Premium Seats, P1,944 for Regular Seats, and P1,620 for Back Seats. You can find the seat plan below.

Starring Jon Santos, who reprises his role from last year’s limited, sold-out runs in July and September, the 90-minute, one-act play is told through the perspective of an individual who faces his mother’s depression. He begins to write a list of things that make life worth living, such as ice cream and being allowed to watch TV. The script has been translated to Filipino by Guelan Luarca.

The show is directed by Jenny Jamora. Also in the artistic team are Arvy Dimaculangan as sound designer, Kiefer Sison as lighting designer, Mark Dalacat as set designer, and Krystal Kane as costume stylist.
