Like Nick Joaquin’s magnum opus A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino, the plays in Distrito de Molo—a triptych of one-act plays by UP Visayas Professor Emeritus and Palanca Hall of Fame awardee Leoncio Deriada, directed recently for Dulaang UP by Tony Mabesa—are theatrical dirges for a grandiose city (and a life) that has long since capitulated to the ravages of historical time. In particular, these plays are about the legendary Molo district of Iloilo City, home to many illustrious and wealthy Ilonggo clans, whose majestic ancestral mansions still dot the much-revised landscape, albeit in increasingly sorry and decrepit states.
