Palabas: Essays on Philippine Theater History
A collection of essays by Doreen G. Fernandez, this book provides a historical survey of Philippine theater, from rituals and indigenous drama to the contemporary scene. It takes a close look at particular texts and performances: a salubong in Angono, a komedya in Paranaque, and a contemporary play by PETA. It also includes notes on theater criticism, a chronology of events in Philippine theater from 1598-1994, and a list of playwrights and plays cited from 1637-1994.
