Bicol adaptation of Trifles to be staged, 100 years after play’s premiere in 1916



The Bikol adaptation of Susan Glaspell’s Trifles will be staged by Teatro Ragayano this month, one hundred years after the one-act play was first staged in Wharf Theater in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Hawla, Carlos A. Arejola’s adaptation of the play considered by many as “ahead of its time”, will be staged back-to-back with Gamgam, three monologues by Eilyn Nidea based on Arejola’s Mga Ibon sa Maaraw na Alas-Siyete.

The twin bill is scheduled for performances at the Multi-Purpose Hall of the Ragay National Agricultural & Fisheries School (RNAFS) on February 22 and 23 and at the Rolando Andaya Hall on February 24. On tour performances at the Ravina Hall of the Central Bicol State University of Agriculture is scheduled on February 28 and at the Pili Sports and Cultural Complex on February 29.

Also scheduled at the RNAFS Multi-Purpose Hall on February 23 at 3 PM is a round table discussion on the gender issues raised by the two plays. Speakers include the municipal councilor Trixie Clemente Makiling, chair of LGU Ragay education committee; literary historian Lourdes Lobis Nieva, Ph.D.; Atty. Edwina Juri Romanes of the Public Attorney’s Office, a human rights advocate; and Dorren Dulfo Arengue, a gender and development advocate. Playwrights Arejola and Nidea will moderate the discussion, and akin to the 1916 premiere where Glaspell multi-tasked and played one of the female leads, are also directing Hawla and Gamgam, respectively.

Teatro Ragayano is a community theater group based in the Ragay, Camarines Sur.
