The Philippines’ official entry to the 9th Festival International de Théâtre de Mont-Laurier in Quebec, Canada
“13th of September” is a re-imagination of Lanie Robertson’s one-act play 'The Insanity of Mary Girard', directed by Riki Benedicto.
Sunday Evening, Mary Girard is preparing for her last night in Pennsylvania Asylum. Now, 56, her age is visible after more than two decades re-living the moments of her life inside the asylum. While doing her daily routine and preparation with other patients, her past is dawning inside her, the memories of her mother, husband and her dear daughter are right in front of her and it seem like she’s “sane” once again. As for her last night with the tranquilizing chair, she will fight and re-live the moments of lies and betrayal that has never been proven.
Proceeds of the fundraising shows will go to the actors' and production staff's travel expenses to the said festival on 5-11 September 2019.
