Under the direction of Asst. Prof. Elmer DS Rufo. The play magnifies the socio-economic divide between rich and poor.
‘Die, Inday!’ revolves around two sisters, Soleng and Claire whose sole purpose in their mundane existence is to provide labor for their Madame – a beautiful woman who enjoys a luxurious lifestyle. When their madame is not home, the sisters, tired and ugly from laborious work, conduct roleplaying – one plays Madame and the other the submissive maid. The fantasies vary each time, but the finale is the same – the murder of the mistress. Unable to reach climax, the sisters grow frustrated in their fantasies, could this be the reason they decide to kill their Madame in reality?
