Comments:
This play shows the dexterity of Marjorie Ann Lorico as a thespian playing the role of Misis Reyes, a high school Music teacher. Marjorie is able to capture the character of a teacher and bring onstage the vulnerability of being a teacher. The play covers the life and thoughts that go on in the mind of Misis Reyes even if she is already in the classroom. Her past and the problems in the family linger in her mind during her last and final lecture which she prepares for very well. Her passion, her love life, her conflict with her older sister would get into her mind. As a teacher myself, it is really a challenge for me to leave my personal concerns behind and just focus on my subject in class. Being a creative teacher, Misis Reyes wants to teach a very sensitive subject matter which is sex. And the only way she knows effective to teach it is through music. “Ang Huling Lektyur ni Misis Reyes” is both hilarious and entertaining play. Marjorie is an excellent actor. A must-see!
