CCP launches the special issue of VLF Anthology by Women Playwrights
THE Cultural Center of the Philippines, through its Intertextual Division, recently had a soft launch of the special anthology of the Virgin Lab Festival fully staged plays on March 31 at the CCP and CCP Intertextual Division Facebook Pages as part of the Center’s celebration of National Women’s Month.
Entitled “Elemental: Mga Babaeng Mandudula at mga Elemento ng Drama,” and edited by veteran playwright Ms. Layeta Bucoy, the e-book will be formally launched online likewise during this year’s Virgin Labfest which will be held from June 14 to July 6, 2021. The e-book can be downloaded for free.
The plays selected for this volume were chosen from the works by women that were staged from various editions of the Virgin Labfest, the annual theater festival that provides a venue for the emerging and established Filipino playwrights to present their unpublished, unstaged, untested and untried works to the theater-going public. The works by women were selected to serve as samples to help define and explain the elements of a play. The e-book can also be considered as a manual in writing for theater.
