This book investigates the history of the Philippine
People s Theatre, its culture, aesthetic and
pedagogical aims and its contribution to the
changing status and role of the Filipino women.It
focuses on the Philippine Educational Theater
Association (PETA), the most significant exponent of
the Philippine People s Theatre.
The book differentiates itself from studies in this
area in several ways. Firstly, by aiming to
establish the connection between feminism,
nationalism and radical theatre as these ideologies
coalesced in the time of the inception of this
pioneering theatre. Secondly, by highlighting the
central role of two prominent PETA women: Cecile
Guidote Alvarez, PETA s founder and Marilou Leviste
Jacob, one of PETA s leading playwrights. Thirdly,
this book extends to include PETA s more recent
activities such as its mobile theatre.
The content is of strategic interest to Third World
development workers, to students and researchers
investigating the various socio-economic, political,
educational and cultural areas of Philippine studies.
