From the title itself, you’ll know that their would be a bit of nudity and sexy scenes in an entire play. Also, they tackle some mature themes like sex, pornography, and foul language. Despite all this, you can’t help it to laugh out loud for their witty green jokes.
(2) This is April “Congratulations” Gustilo, Vivo Ouano, Tori Garcia, and John Raspado’s first stage play
From the start, the four lead actors are not known to act on stage, but not because this is their first time doesn’t mean they can’t.
April Gustilo made a name via ABS-CBN 2’s noontime game as the dancing ‘congratulations’ girl in 2009 and eventually appeared on several shows on TV5 and GMA-7.

(3) Singapore’s Sweetheart, Tori Garcia, will play two roles
According to Tori, she’ll play two roles: the lead character, Georgina and a minor lesbian character named Suzy.

Suzy is not the only gay character in the play. Vivo Ouano and John Raspado play as a closet gay lovers. The press asked Vivo about his experience with John who’s a homosexual man in real life “Nung una, medyo nailang talaga ako [kay John Raspado]. Pero habang tumatagal, habang nagre-rehearse kami, nagiging komportable na rin,” (At first, I was a bit hesitate, but after several rehearsals, I’m become more comfortable with him) said Vivo.
