On the heels of the much-lauded Never Again: Voices of Martial Law festival of plays last year, Ladies Who Launch announces its new production, SIGAW SA DILIM, revolving around the issue of human rights in an era of state sanctioned killings, more commonly known as EJKs.

SIGAW SA DILIM is a set of three one-act plays featuring characters affected by the deadly war on drugs, better known as Operation Tokhang, in the poor communities around the country.
