Now Streaming: VLF’s ‘Anak Ka Ng’ is Online
The Cultural Center of the Philippines celebrates Women’s Month with its Women’s Month Showcase, featuring past shows that have centered on women’s issues.
One of the plays streaming on the CCP Channel is U Z Eliserio’s Anak Ka Ng, which first opened in 2019 as part of the Virgin Labfest 15. It was chosen to be part of the revisited list of plays for 2020.
The story follows Pina, who has spent most of her life without a mother. She has learned to rely on and love only her father. But now, her father is dead. Connie, her mother, came home from abroad seemingly just to attend to the details of the funeral and burial, not to grieve. Soon, Connie will leave the Philippines again. Pina has to decide: will she forgive her mother and try to salvage their relationship, or will she cast Connie completely out of her life?
The cast features Krystle Valentin as Pina, Skyzx Labastilla as Connie, and Rafael Tibayan as Niko. It is directed by Maynard Manansala.
You can watch it through the CCP Channel only until March 31. You can also find the show below.
