Anak Ti Diablo, by Patty Cachapero, at Bindlestiff Studio

Anak Ti Diablo, by Patty Cachapero, at Bindlestiff Studio

ANAK TI DIABLO, an Ilocano term for Children of the Devil,
is the name of a Pinoy punk rock band in Daly City who is
about to claim their identity as true rock artists of its
generation. Loosely adapted from Plautus Haunted House,
playwright Patty Cachapero sets in motion this zany
dramedy with characters rich in comic frivolities and soap
opera twang. It tells the story of Anak ti Diablo, the Pilipino-
American punk rock band who gets entangled with a
neighborhood loan shark, an absurdly pious Catholic mother,
a barrio fiesta beauty pageant wannabe and a self imposed
rock artist-guru. The play's action is energized when the
characters break into thrash metal riffs and sweet Rondalla
tunes to exorcise ghosts of the past and summon the spirits
of colonial history. In the end everyone rocks out. Cast
includes Rose Almario, Pio Candelaria, Eric Fructuoso,
Werner Goff, Joel Merchan, Jamie Nallas, Francis Novero,
Jose Saenz and Golda Supanova Sargento. Set Design by
Dino Ignacio and music by Ogie Gonzales.
