Reaction Paper on "Berde"

Reaction to BERDE: Hindi lang pula ang kulay ng pag-ibig
This stage play was mainly adapted in Filipino from the original play Clash of the Cymbals by National Artist, Wilfredo Ma. Guerrero. It was directed by Loyd Sato and produced by Focus Productions and Services. For the first few minutes of the show, the connection between the title of the play and its message seemed to be a blur. However, the colors red, blue and yellow were present in the different scenes of the play. It was only towards the end when green light flooded the stage. Hence, the title Berde. The play was about Edwin, a homosexual person, whose father (Arman) strongly disagreed on his perspective on sexuality. His mother (Charo), on the other hand, accepted the fact that her son was gay. Charo was submissive to her husband but permissive with her son. Her secret agenda only led her to lose the trust of the two people whom she held dear. The love story of Edwin and his partner Butch mirrored how society could not accept another minority. As events in the story did not turn out right, it proved that love conquers all, even if it is not of the color red. It is obvious that the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community is calling on their rights to be heard, to have a relationship with one another out in the open and to be accepted by society. Well, I have gay friends, and they have relationships with people their gender. I have dealt with this for as long as 7 years now, and it has not been a problem to me, because as much as they don’t want to see their sexuality as a disobedience to God’s Word, they accepted me for my sins. There’s a phrase written by Ablas Poetry that says “Don’t judge others because they sin differently than you”. So all I can possibly do is to fully love and accept God’s creations, because He loves them just as much as I am loved by Him. We are all equal in the eyes of God. But, the only thing I disapprove on is gay-marriage. Gay-marriage is just extreme. I am not judging people, but the practices created by the creations (humans). Berde has indeed served its purpose of sharing the message of ending gender discrimination to the people through theatre.
