*About the production (from **petatheater.com/agameoftrolls
<http://petatheater.com/agameoftrolls>)**:*

A GAME OF TROLLS, #aGoT the Musicale, is the story of Heck, a troll whose
indifference makes him the perfect keyboard warrior for Bimbam, the manager
of a ‘call center’ that runs an online pro-martial law campaign. His lack
of attachment to any belief can be used to make him unleash callous words
to anyone who comments against the martial law days. Ghosts of Martial law
victims haunt him from the internet cloud, where they fear being erased as
people slowly forget their stories. The encounters forced him to reflect on
his own beliefs and his relationship with his mother, a former Martial Law
activist.

Written by Liza Magtoto and directed by Maribel Legarda (the same
writer-director tandem that produced the megahit Rak of Aegis), the key
messages of the musical are best illustrated with these hashtags:
#NeverForget, #NeverAgain and #BayanMunaBagoSarili.

PETA’S TAKE

PETA hopes that this play will be a call to action – to make our young
people look beyond the memes and the online propaganda that had become so
accessible because of social media, to encourage them to do their own
research, to think critically and to act with responsibility. Today, it is
staged not simply as an effort to revive fading memories of traumatic
events that took place over 30 to 40 years ago. As contemporary events
show, the fight for freedom and democracy – against the forces of
dictatorship and darkness – still rages in our country. Thus, it is more
important now to never forget the painful lessons of the martial law and
never again allow strongman rule to be set up in the Philippines. Through
the theater, we want to reach the youth of today so they will learn to
treasure their freedom, which was fought with blood and tears by their
elders.
