“‘Philomena’ is the deftly told story of three characters who find themselves, by pure chance, in the same space at the same time, each with his or her personal issues that they would have carried with them if events do not force them out. Each character seeks justification for their rage at society, government and life,” the statement read.

According to the statement, the presentation of the stage play was carefully timed to hold during this year’s Valentine’s season.

Commenting on the project, Manuel said: “‘Philomena: Interview With A Prostitute’ cannot be contained in just a book anymore. Like the little acorn, the intensive little play has grown to become a massive star-studded theatrical phenomenon.”

On her part, Chinda, who is the joint executive producer of the project, said: “From my first encounter with the play, Philomena, it became a story that demanded to be told.”
