Share this article

Encore Theater has announced that Floy Quintos’ Grace is set to rerun on September 6 to 15, 2024 in a new venue, this time at the Doreen Black Box Theater, Areté of Ateneo de Manila University.

The play ran from May 25 to June 23 at the PMCS Blackbox Theater, Circuit Makati. Grace is Floy Quintos’ swan song, completed shortly before his untimely passing on April 27 of this year.

Based on the true story of Sister Teresita “Teresing” Castillo, then a novice nun, the play explores her claims of encountering the devil and later witnessing the Virgin Mother appearing to her in the convent of the Discalced Carmelites in Lipa Carmel, Batangas, as Mary, Mediatrix of All Grace. Her account, along with the alleged apparitions and miracles, ignited a national controversy in 1948 that remains unresolved and continues to haunt the Philippine church and its faithful today.

The cast features Stella Cañete-Mendoza as Teresita Castillo, Shamaine Centenera-Buencamino as Mother Cecilia of Jesus, Frances Makil-Ignacio as Sister Agatha, Missy Maramara as Sister Lucia, Matel Patayon as Sister/Nurse, Leo Rialp as Monsignor Egidio Vagnozzi, Dennis Marasigan as Monsignor Rufino Santos, Nelsito Gomez as Father Angel de Blas, Jojo Cayabyab as Monsignor Alfredo, and Raphne Catorce as Guillermo.

The show is directed by Dexter M. Santos. Also in the artistic team are Mitoy Sta. Ana (Production Design), John Batalla (Lighting Designer), Steven Tansiongco (Graphic and Video Designer), Arvy Dimaculangan (Music and Sound Designer), Mikko Angeles (Assistant Director & Video Publicity), Marvin Olaes (Dramaturg and Publicity Manager), Davidson Oliveros (Dramaturg and Publicity Manager), and Meliton Roxas, Jr. (Technical Director).

Ticketing details will be announced soon.
