José Rizal – “Pepe” – (1861-1896) is one of the most revered figures in Philippine history. He was a multifaceted intellectual, a novelist, a celebrated physician, and a political activist. He is best known for his writings that inspired the Philippine revolution and ultimately led to his execution by the Spanish colonizers. Rizal’s martyrdom ended over 300 years of oppressive Spanish tyranny by giving birth to the Philippines as an independent nation. In the words of the playwright: “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.” Director Francis Matheu will bring Malou Jacob’s play to life using a variety of presentation techniques.
Malou Jacob is a Filipino playwright and a recipient of the S.E.A. Write Award and was also a creative consultant of the Communication Foundation for Asia.
Francis Matheu is the Founding Artistic Director of Twin Bill Theatre in the Philippines, and a recent graduate of the UVic MFA Theatre Directing program.
