Subtext is a Palanca Award-winning written by Niel de Mesa. This talks a bout the different ways of saying or I should say expressing LOVE. From the old generation's writing letter to the younger ones' text messaging, it doesn't matter as long as you say it right. This is what Subtext is all about. A cheesy, funny and sweet way saying I Love You. You won't stop laughing and I know you can relate with the each line of the play.
In UPLB, what we did is what we call,"intimate theater." You get an intimate look at the play with just a few audiences surrounding it. It was directed by Anthony Cabatic under the Thespian circle Production.
Now, after 4 years, Subtext was again given life in EAC - Manila by the Yaman Lahi Theater Guild in EAC - Manila.
Scene 1. Who can forget about "LAB? LAB? Helllooooo.. L-A-B?! Hindi L-U-V-. Hindi L-O-V-E. Ang pagkakaspell mo... L-A-B!! "I LAB U"."
And everybody laughed. This is about a lady and a guy who quarreled on a fine dining restaurant because of misunderstandings on their text messages. But aside from quarreling, everything was funny.
