When Sir Rody taught us the approach about conflict, I realized that it’s actually so much simpler and practical than how I teach it.

May Cardoso, Literature professor playwright of “Ang Sugilanon ng Kabiguan ni Epefania” (VLF 12)

Sobrang thankful ako. Ang dami kong na-pick up from Sir Rody and my co-workshoppers.

Carlo Tarobal, film graduate finished his first play

I felt like I’m having a master’s degree on stage playwriting.

Migy Obina, banker playwright, “Mga Bata sa Selda 43” (VLF 14)

Nasa stage ako ng paghahanap ulit ng marka o katotohanan na mayroon ka. Sakto itong workshop. Challenge is to say what story you want to tell that will make your mark as a playwright.

J-mee Katanyag, GMA writer/brainstormer and PETA artist-teacher, playwright “Betang”, VLF 10
