Nothing can prepare you for Pieta.



The show is set to the minimum. Well, physically. The set is simple yet resourced well. The lighting kept to a minimum. Furthermore, there are only four (4) characters in the play: the mother-Josephina, the father-Angelo and the kids-Nino and Maria. With the bareness and honesty of the play, there is room for the mind to trail and ponder.



I was also pleased with the concept of Pieta. There may not be much going on physically but there’s definitely depth to the play. This may be a “Dulang Pampamilya (family play)” as they say, but this isn’t a show for those weak hearted and those that aren’t ready to have their mind and emotions boggled by the art and the issues that Pieta tackles.

This is the first time I’ve seen a play from the Shaharazade Theatre Company, but at this rate, I’m pretty sure this won’t be the last. Kudos to the team!


Pieta is definite must see!
