Get your tickets to It's April. What Are We Doing Here, onstage on selected dates from now until October 253 p.m. or 8 p.m., at DITO: Bahay ng Sining in Marikina. It tells the story of a philandering husband who admits to committing a string of extramarital affairs, but finds nothing objectionable about it. The wife is hurt knowing all this, but is too sophisticated to go ballistic and demands a dissolution of the marriage. The mistress, caught in this love triangle, also gets hurt but seeks a way to work things out to her best interest. Rolando Tinio’s stylish romantic comedy, set in Manila during the '60s, finds an unconventional solution to this interpersonal drama.
