NEKROPOLIS is a devised play by Guelan Luarca, Charles Yee, Soc Amon, and the Tanghalang Pilipino Actors Company through a collaborative process called ‘dulambayanihan’. The play probes and dramatizes death and power in the past six years.


In a city where people slumber through the sound of gunshots and screens flicker with one breaking news after another, 10 characters try to survive and make sense of their lives. Amid the chaos, they seek to numb their senses with drugs, with sex, with God. Don’t we know this city to be our own? New York-based Palanca-winning playwright Guelan Varela-Luarca calls “Nekropolis” his last departure from dystopian themes. Catch this masterpiece in the fearless, able hands of director Charles Yee and the Tanghalang Pilipino Actors Company.
