Being bitter never tasted this good! After almost a year, one of the country’s top plays is back, Kapeng Barako Club (KBC): Samahan ng mga Bitter. Staged in well-known coffee shops around the metro, KBC is set to please kape lovers once more on June 28, 2014 at the newly-opened Craft Coffee Revolution in 88 Loyola Building, Esteban Abada Street, Loyola Heights, Quezon City.
This Palanca Award-winning play is written and directed by Juan Ekis, who is previously known for his other Palanca winning play “Twenty Questions” which went viral in the internet. The playwright shares with us that he “…just wanted to stage a play with the title Kapeng Barako Club: Samahan ng mga Bitter. I didn’t know yet what it was going to be about. But I just knew I wanted to write about types of people and the types of coffee they love and how their personalities are reflected in their drinks.”
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.
