The most awaited production to end the FEU Theater Guild (FTG)’s 89th season, along with the FEU Center for the Arts (FCA) is the return of “Ang Unang Aswang”.

The play takes place in a dangerous forest ruled by the wilderness written by Palanca awardee playwright Rody Vera and directed by a respected member, director, and actor of the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) and the appointed Artistic Director of FTG, Mr. Dudz Teraña.

Ang Unang Aswang

Wander where the Aswang dwells! With sharp teeth, venomous stares, and the rabidness of a wild animal, the Aswangsearches for her identity in a village she has not been to before. Will her curiosity towards her origin urge her to search for her identity? Will a gut-wrenching deed done by a boy bring out her true nature to consume her own offspring? Join the exploration of fear and hesitation. Hear the songs and the voices of the chorus that whisper like winds through the forest, and the chants of elements in the woods that sway to the sound of the bamboo.

Ang ‘Aswang’ will alternately be played by Dianne Andallo (ITHM ’26), Jazzie Alejo (ITHM ’24), Brigitta Marilla (IAS ’25), and Margarita Barrameda (IAS ’26).
