Time: 8:00 P.M. (every Friday, Saturday and Sunday)
Venue: Globe Iconic Store, Bonifacio High Street Amphitheater, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

But it does have an intriguing plot all the same: It's about three men — Johnny, Tunny and Will — who end up having to work out not-so-typical kinks in their lives.
