“Gintong Yaman ng Sinirang Bayan” is a satirical play about dreams, lives and relationships of families in a community in Northern Luzon that is being affected by the impending mining operation in the area.
The play is set in a barrio in Nueva Vizcaya during the course of a foreign mining company’s application in the province. The residents of the community find themselves with differing stands and opinions regarding the mining operation which poses to offer the residents with a golden opportunity.
Ruben, in his search for the golden dream and his quest to make it big, grabbed the scholarship grant from the mining company, much to his mother’s dismay. Other inhabitants of the community engage themselves in heated debates regarding the positive and negative effects the mining operation will bring.
Ruben must decide. Will he go after his golden dream despite the disapproval of his loved ones and the destruction of his native land? What is the truth behind his father’s death and what will its implication be on Ruben’s decision?
