“Her Son, Jose Rizal” is a brilliant theatre piece on the Philippines’ national hero, Dr Jose Rizal, during Spain’s colonization of the Philippines in the 18th century. This one-act play is a recollection of Jose’s childhood days and some of those precious moments with his mother, Dona Teodora and siblings Soledad and Paciano, while in prison writing his last poem (“Mi Ultimo Adios”) and awaiting execution for conspiracy, sedition and rebellion in Bagumbayan, Manila.
A maiden production by Fine Artists Collaboration, Director Armando “RC” Reyes brings together on stage professional and amateur artists led by singer actor RJ Rosales as “Jose Rizal”. RJ’s stage performance credits include Miss Saigon, where he earned a Best Supporting Actor nomination at the Helpmann Awards, Beauty and the Beast, Forbidden City, Cabaret, Chang and En. RJ also performed in live concerts in America, Australia, Philippines, Japan and other Asian countries.
The cast is bound to enthral Sydneysiders as each one pulls on those patriotic heart strings to commemorate the 149th birth anniversary of the patriot and pride of the Malayan Race.
