(PRESS RELEASE) Anonymous Theater, an up-and-coming theater company is staging Adam Szudrich’s 10-minute plays in a show called “In A Nutshell: Adam Szudrich.” It runs on February 15, 16, 22, 23 at 3:00 PM & 7:00 PM at the Parc Theater Black Box in San Juan.
Adam Szudrich is a ‘Bartie’ award-winning writer whose works has been selected in 84 festivals and received 40 awards. His play Rosa & Leo recently won Best International Play @ The International Festival of Ten-Minute Plays. He also won 6 awards at Launch 2020 including Best Written Play & Best Overall Play.
While Adam Szudrich is a ‘Bartie’ award-winning writer, he is relatively unknown in the Philippines. Anonymous Theater has chosen to showcase six of his 10-minute plays: Ten Minutes, Manstruating, Slow Dating, Two Psychics Meet on Tinder, Jake’s Room, and One Night Stan. The plays delve into the concept of longing, whether for a person, an idea or for love.
Aside from multiple awards, various groups from all over the world express their approval of Szudrich’s short plays. For One Night Stan, Huffington Post said: “Szudrich’s play is blessed with wit, style, a solid premise, and a stunningly layered performance by Kim Saunders as an older woman on the prowl.” London Theatre 1 wrote: “You know how sometimes an actor is described as being a triple threat – the perfect type of actor – well, without a shadow of a doubt Slow Dating is the triple threat of the play world.” Sydney Arts Guide said that Slow Dating is “Heaps of laughter, perfectly paced and the forever memorable, quite delicious and delightful dialogue was expertly delivered. A crowd pleaser”. What’s on Sydney called Manstruating a “Stand out comedy”.
Anonymous Theater spotlights a cast and artistic team of fresh faces ready to bring Adam’s stories to life in the Philippines. The cast includes Abi Sulit, Aica Ganhinhin, Angelo Esperanzate, J.P. Mercado, Jade Orona, L.J. Galvez, Phillip Latonio, Salve Villarosa, Terry, Gutierrez, and Timothy Racho.
