Gantimpala Theater actors stage the historical play Katipunan, Mga Anak ng Bayan, for free on September 2 at the Luneta Park.

Kicking off the Pearl Theater Festival of Gantimpala Theater is the historical play Katipunan, Mga Anak ng Bayan, which will be staged on Sunday, September 2.

Pamela Hundana and Remus Villanueva lead the cast of Katipunan, Mga Anak ng Bayan, that will performed by Gantimpala at the Concert at the Park Open Air Auditorium in Luneta.

This historical play written by Bonifacio Ilagan won first prize in the annual playwriting contest sponsored by the Cultural Center of the Philippines in 1978. The very first Gantimpala production is about the life story of the great plebian and the father of the Katipunan, Andres Bonifacio. This historical play is about the events on the life of the Supremo prior to the tearing of the cedulas, which marked the start of the Philippine revolution.

Playing the leads are Lowell Conales (Andres Bonifacio), Pamela Hundana (Gregoria de Jesus), and Remus Villanueva (Emilio Jacinto).

"I'm familiar with the material but we put a twist in it," says Jeffrey Camañag, the director of this Gantimpala Theater production. "We incorporated hope into the play-the hope that Bonifacio imparted on the [Philippine] revolution."
