REMEMBER WHEN? - Danny Dolor (The Philippine Star) - July 11, 2020 - 12:00am

The Ponce Enrile sisters, Armida Siguion-Reyna and Irma Potenciano, played Candida and Paula, in the 1990 production of the play, Larawan ng Pilipino Bilang Artista. Larawan was mounted at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino for several nights of February 1990.

Larawan was written by Nonon Padilla, based on Nick Joaquin’s A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino.

Larawan revolves around the lives of the Marasigan spinster sisters, Candida and Paula, living in Intramuros at the start of World War II. Their father, Don Lorenzo Marasigan, is a noted painter.
