In Notes for the Filipino Playwright, multi-awarded playwright MaLou Jacob revisits her personal history—as an artist, a writer, a woman, a Filipino. Unearthed from the consciousness of the Filipino playwright herself, this collection of essays, speeches, and reflections stages Jacob’s provocative questions and uncompromising advice to readers and writers. “What is my life for? What is my writing for?” “Should the writer be an advocate of an ideology?” “Is there a feminist Asian aesthetics?" These are some of the questions raised by Jacob as she negotiates the identity and identifications of the Filipino playwright at large.
