About Ampalaya Monologues
In 2013, Mark Ghosn started writing Amaplaya Monologues, an episodicplay about love, heartaches and bitterness. It tells stories of individuals who've tasted the different kinds of bitterness that love has to offer. The play is performed by actors of Theatre in Alternative Platforms (TAP). The show has been featured on different TV shows, websites and news channels. It had full-packed shows in the country's prime venues such as the PETA Theatre and the Cultural Center of The Philippines.
Today, Ampalaya Monologues has been recreated into different versions (LoveWins, BitterSweet, SingleBells, Dialogues, etc.). And what started as 5, has evolved into almost 50 monologues, 27 of which has been published nationwide as a book. With sold-out shows, viral videos, news articles, television and out of town appearances, Ampalaya monologues is now known as one of the most successful episodic plays in the Philippines.
