Mr. & Mrs. La Questa Go Dancing
Written by Noel Alumit
Directed by Louie Sison
Jay and Lori La Questa, a middle-aged Filipino couple, are having their annual dance party. Mixed with food and their usual rhythmic gait through tango and cha-cha, they gather friends as they always have to celebrate life and honor their only son, Boyett. To the outside world, the dance party may seem celebratory and candid but to their inner selves, it is a night of healing, reconciliation and catharsis from an experience that altered their lives forever. And this they would do in a way they know best – through dancing. As they dance the night away, they find themselves retelling stories about their son, both bitter and sweet, finding new meaning from a past that continues to haunt them in their search for peace and acceptance.
