Virgin Labfest 12: The Touching Story of Maria Isabella at ang Guryon ng mga Tala

One of the plays from Virgin Labfest 11 that were restaged this year is Maria Isabella at ang Guryon ng Mga Tala by Eljay Casto Deldoc.

If you missed it last year, it's part of Set E this year and I understand fully why they decided to restage it this year.

It's probably one of the best children's plays I've ever seen that was written for an adult audience. I shed a tear or two in the end as the story is about unrequited love and how as human beings, we look for love in all the wrong places when our true love is just in front of us.

The script is like poetry and there are many Filipino words here that I'm sure you'll be hearing for the first time - it's like a Botany lesson done in Filipino. To put that in context -all those terms are needed to build the kite that Maria Isabella needs.

I won't give too much of the story since I'd rather you take your time and watch it for yourself. It's a must-see and probably one of the most memorable theater memories of my life.

There was even a bit of a props malfunction in the end but the lead actress cleverly ad-libbed making the audience laugh even more!

There is really nothing like live theater - actors have to be on their toes all the time!
