Eugene Domingo back in theater scene after 5-year hiatus
Acclaimed movie, TV and stage actress Eugene Domingo is back in the theater scene after being away for five years. Her last play was the stage adaptation of the Lino Brocka classic “Bona” in 2012.
Beginning February 2, Domingo will be starring in “Night Mother,” the Filipino adaptation of Marsha Norman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama of the same title together with veteran actress Sherry Lara.
“Night Mother” tells the story of Jesse (Domingo), who one night revealed to her mother Thelma (Lara) her plans of taking her own life. The one-act play runs uninterrupted for 90 minutes as Thelma desperately tries to talk her daughter out of killing herself.
Due to the sensitivity of the topic, the Philippine Educational Theater Association, the producer of “Night Mother,” arranged for mental health professionals to conduct a debriefing for the members of the audience after every show.
Catch “Night Mother” every Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting February 2 until March 18 at the PETA-Phinma Theater.
