The Banana Fairy, Ang Mutya ng Saging and Tribute to the Works of Oscar Penaranda

The Banana Fairy, Ang Mutya ng Saging and Tribute to the Works of Oscar Penaranda

"The Banana Fairy" (Mutya ng Saging) is an adventurous
look at one man's journey into the depths of Philippine
folklore. Philip, an American, discovers the legend of a
mysterious amulet that holds tremendous powers and good
fortune, the anting-anting.

Enticed by the stories of old by local villagers, Philip
embarks on an adventure that brings him into the darkness
of the Banana Tree Jungle where he sets out a quest to find
this banana fairy. But to the foreigner's shock and horror
appears the guardian of this mystical jewel, the beastly
creature known as the Kapre. Will his urge to possess the
banana fairy succeed? Or will the towering Kapre, control
Philip's destiny?

Revival Arts Productions is also proud to announce a
dramatic presentation of select readings of one of today's
most inspiring and introspective writers in the Filipino-
American community, Oscar Penaranda. Our ensemble cast
of actors, dancers, and musicians allow their artistic
_expression to transcend the deeper meanings of
Penaranda's works.

Revival Arts Productions' mission is to entertain audiences
and impact the Theater Arts by bringing life to Filipino-
Authored plays.

"We believe it is very important that Filipinos overseas are
made aware of the legacy of their Filipino compatriots. We
commend RAP for promoting Filipino plays"
-Joaquin Family (family of the late Agapito Joaquin,
playwright of the critically acclaimed "Tin Roof")
