THE Cultural Center of the Philippines, in partnership with its’ resident theater company Tanghalang Pilipino and the Writer’s Bloc Inc., hosts the  Virgin Labfest, an annual theater festival dedicated to the staging of untried, untested and unstaged works, from June 27 to July 15, 2018 at various venues of the CCP.


The three-week festival promises to be a spectacular one, offering twelve new plays and four staged readings, and three revisited plays from last year’s festival all performed by outstanding thespians and directed by upcoming and established directors.


Taking “Silip” as its catchphrase, the festival offers a chance for writers to see their creative skills taken from page to stage. Now on its 14th year, the annual theater festival picked 12 new featured one-act works, out of more than 150 manuscripts submitted.  Each expresses the complexity of human experience and create dialogues on social issues.
