PLAYS ABOUT LIFE IN HAWAI‘I. PLAYS BY HAWAI‘I'S PLAYWRIGHTS. PLAYS FOR HAWAI‘I'S PEOPLE.
BY YILONG LIU
AUGUST 27 - october 4, 2015
Set around the fight for marriage equality in Hawai‘i, Joe’s normal simple life unravels as a promise kept is threatened by a visit of a man from his past.
“WHAT A MANIPULATIVE CREATURE YOU STILL ARE, JOKER.” “YOU CAN’T SIT OUT THIS FIGHT ANYMORE, FRIEND. WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, CHANGE IS COMING.”
Joe is unable to let go of a lover who has passed away, which negatively affects his current relationships. He begins to harbor resentment and becomes a man who causes pain not only to himself, but to all those close to him.
Love, secrets and betrayal abound in this realistic look into lives touched by fear of exposing one man’s love for another.
