As you all know, I love coffee! And mostly anything or everything related to it as well. So I was quite fascinated when I heard about a certain Play that is being shown in a coffee shop of all places! I heard about it last year and now I'm pleased to share that they have another running again coming within these months. Title pa lang ng play... hooked na ko! Learn more about this Palanca Award-winning play -- Kapeng Barako Club (KBC): Samahan ng mga Bitter.
KBC is the longest-running show presented by Arts and Culture Asia (ACASIA), a non-profit organization aimed at cultivating the crafts of thespians and showcasing their talents across different venues. “ACASIA’s advocacy is to teach artists how to manage their talents wisely and open avenues for them to show it and them being a part of KBC is one of it. Nestled in a natural setting (coffee shops), coffee drinkers get to enjoy a play like this. Think of it as if you’re eavesdropping. It’s actually fun!” says ACASIA’s Managing Director and one of KBC’s lead actors, Ms. Daianne Moreno.
KBC unfolds the story of a group of coffee-loving friends who don’t believe in love but in reality, each one is dying to experience being loved.
Joel, a freelance artist and struggles to confess his love to Anna
Anna, an accounts executive and best friend of Joel
Masi, a vocalist for a band and engaged to Ed (ex love interest of Anna).
