Mel, a retired engineer, is dying from cancer. He invites his adult children, Leah and Pree, home to cook for him during his last hurrah, but the kids smell a rat. Soon enough Mel introduces them to his mysterious lover, Randi, whose strange insights into the kids’ lives unnerves them.  When they learn what their father and Randi really have in mind they try to stop the plan, only to discover Randi is not at all what he seems.

DIKTADOR

by Molly Krost
directed by Conrad Panganiban

Thursday     4/26  7pm  
Sunday        4/29  4pm

Mothers and daughters in both 1972 and the present find themselves listening to an announcement from Presidents Ferdinand Marcos and Rodrigo Duterte that can only mean one thing. Is it absolute terror or a necessary protection? They are at odds with their leaders and at odds with each other. Who are they against? Or, better yet, who should they be against? DIKTADOR looks at the tumultuous history of martial law in Philippines, comparing one of the bloodiest periods in the country’s past to the eerily similar signs appearing in their current administration.
