Acclaimed playwright and director Floy Quintos died on Saturday, April 27, due to a heart attack, his family confirmed.

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I, on behalf of my family, announce that Floy Quintos, esteemed playwright and director, but more importantly beloved brother, son, uncle, cousin, nephew, and friend, has returned to the arms of the Lord,” Celina Quintos, his niece, said through a Facebook post.


“He passed suddenly in the ER from a heart attack this morning,” she added.


Quintos’ passing came just over a week after his 63rd birthday.

Celina asked the public for prayers and support for the bereaved family, saying wake details will soon be announced.

“Floy Quintos was a beacon of Philippine culture and the arts, but also shone so much firelight for the people closest to him,” Celina spoke of the late artist.

“The country, the world, and our home are much darker with this light snuffed out too soon. We hope to share our light with each other through this time,” she stated.

Quintos—who was also dubbed as a culture polymath—was the playwright behind the Palanca award-winners “Fluid,” “Ang Kalungkutan ng Mga Reyna,” as well as “Suor Clara,” “The Kundiman Party” and “The Reconciliation Dinner,” among many others.


His most recent stage play is entitled “Grace,” and is being staged until June 16.
