Much-Anticipated Rerun of Hit Play THE RECONCILIATION DINNER at Circuit Makati from May 13 to 28

How do you feel about this story?


We have witnessed the most polarizing national elections in recent history. With our personal relationships on the line, are we willing to sacrifice our principles and ideals? And for what price?

The stage is set for the highly-anticipated return of THE RECONCILIATION DINNER, written by Floy Quintos and directed by Dexter M. Santos, returns to the stage at the Power Mac Center Spotlight, Circuit Makati from May 13 to 28. It first premiered in November of 2022 to rave reviews and packed houses.

THE RECONCILIATION DINNER is a dark comedy about friends trying to heal unspoken hurts, suspicions, disbelief about the choices of those they thought they knew well. In light of the 2022 elections, how well do we really know those we hold dear? And how far are we willing to go to overlook the choices they make? The play follows the lives of close family friends—the Medinas and the Valderamas—who are forced to confront their personal differences amid the looming political turmoil in the Philippines.

The production boasts a powerhouse ensemble of actors led by Gawad Buhay Awardee (Female Lead Performance in a Musical) by Stella Cañete-Mendoza and seasoned TV, film, and theater actor Frances Makil-Ignacio. They are joined by regulars in the Philippines theatre scene including Randy Medel Villarama, Jojo Cayabyab, Nelsito Gomez, Mica Pineda, and Phi Palmos.

Joining Quintos and Santos on their sixth theatre collaboration (previous works include The Kundiman Party, Angry Christ, Ang Huling Lagda ni Apolinario Mabini, Ang Nawalang Kapatid, and Collection) are John Batalla (lights), Mitoy Sta. Ana (set and costume), Arvy Dimaculangan (sounds), Steven Tansiongco (video and poster), and Jojit Lorenzo (photography).
