Rep’s “Father’s Day” is a Play About Dysfunctional Families

Repertory Philippines is giving us a play that examines the shared journey of a family in the most relatable way. Father’s Day is a fitting tribute to imperfect families, so prepare yourself for a fresh and unique theater experience.

In the play, Henry Willows receives an unexpected visit from his estranged son, Matthew, and his goth girlfriend, Christine. Still bitter from the divorce that tore his family apart, Henry treats them unkindly. After discovering that Matthew has run away, he decides to call his ex-wife, Sue, resulting in an uneasy family reunion.

Father’s Day runs from March 22 to April 14 at the Onstage Theater in Greenbelt 1. The legendary Baby Barredo will be directing the play, and she will be joined by Miguel Faustmann as Henry Willows, Andres Borromeo as Matthew Willows, Liesl Batucan as Sue, and Becca Coates and Rachel Coates alternating as Christine.

Following the play will be The Dresser, which runs from May 3 to 26 and features a dramatic look at what happens behind-the-scenes of a theater. And perfect for kids and kids at heart, The Quest for the Adarna in September transforms the beloved Ibong Adarna tale into a colorful English musical.
