As a final offering for its 40th Theater Season, PETA presents Vincent de Jesus’ SKIN-DEEP.
Doctor Beau Batoctol, an internationally famous Filipino cosmetic surgeon opens the world’s first one-stop beauty resort here in the Philippines – the SKIN-DEEP BEAUTY SANCTUARY! And for its grand opening promo, seven lucky texters will win a chance to stay at Skin-Deep for a month and avail of all the beauty treatments, procedures and surgeries it has to offer – ABSOLUTELY FOR FREE!!
The Lucky Makeover Seven – an obese female call-center agent, a troubled married couple, a male model wannabe, a flamboyant florist, an abused housewife burned beyond recognition and the reigning Miss Artificial Beauty – go through different miracle procedures hoping to become more aesthetically acceptable to the cruel world outside. Trouble arises inside the Sanctuary when the seven personalities collide – strong opinions clash, questions of self-worth being raised, dirty secrets revealed and ugly truths about themselves are exposed. And the more they become “beautiful” on the outside, the more confused some of them become on the inside.
A story of seven ordinary people and their frenzied search for beauty and happiness, Skin Deep uses a scalpel and cuts the surface to examine one’s need to be accepted by a seemingly superficial world where ‘packaging’ is more important than ‘character’. From a simple tweaking of a nose to a complete body overhaul, they all soon discover that the pursuit of beauty is much more dangerous nonsense than the pursuit of happiness.
Directed by Nor Domingo with original music by Vince De Jesus, Skin-Deep takes centerstage on all weekends beginning February 1 to March 15, 2008 with matinee and evening performances on Fridays and Saturdays and 10am and 3pm performances on Sundays.
