REHEARSALS BEGIN, “Sesar” and “THE CHINESE LADY”

 In Orlando Pabotoy’s play SESAR, a father and his 14-years old son, who is fascinated by the verse and power of poetry in Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” try to make sense of the play. Using his own experiences as a former town mayor, a father teaches his son about ambition, betrayal, and love.

The father and son in SESAR come from the island province of Bohol, in the center of the Philippine archipelago. In SESAR there are passages spoken in Boholano, the local dialect used on the island. Don’t worry, most of the play is in English and you won’t get lost. In this clip, Orlando teaches Richard how to count in Boholano. Give it a try:
