TWO RIVER PLAYERS: Dogeaters
The Two River Players return for a new series of digital community readings, featuring Two River Theater staff members, plus a few surprise guests! Adapted from the 1990 novel of the same name, Jessica Hagedorn’s Dogeaters presents a Philippines that is “sometimes grim and stark, sometimes beautiful and lush, but always volatile.” Set in Manila in 1982, this epic play follows hustlers and authoritarians; soldiers and beauty queens; filmmakers and revolutionaries as the world’s eyes turn to the Philippines for the first Manila International Film Festival.
Please note: This reading includes adult language including racial slurs, sexual content, and sexual violence.
