Pepe by Malou Jacob

Tickets for this show will go on sale shortly after Witch ends its run.

Francis Matheu is the Founding Artistic Director of Twin Bill Theatre in the Philippines, and we are excited to have him work in-person at Theatre Inconnu as the director of this play: a monodrama on the events of the life and times of Jose Rizal, the national hero of the Philippines.
Pepe “focuses on the roots of Rizal’s oppression while exploring his relationship with his family and country, always reminding the audience that although a hero, he was first and foremost an ordinary human being, an ordinary Filipino. We even share a common plight: exploitation by a foreign power” explains playwright Malou Jacob.
Made possible through a special arrangement with Jacob, Mr. Matheu will draw on his many years of professional experience in directing, teaching, and performance to create an exciting and insightful celebration of cultural identity and decolonization. Matheu is currently in Victoria completing his MFA Directing degree at the University of Victoria.
Malou Jacob is a Filipino playwright. She was a recipient of the S.E.A. Write Award. She has also been creative consultant of Communication Foundation for Asia.
