MY BOY HE PLAY BALL
A WORLD PREMIERE BY TAMMY HAILIʻOPUA BAKER
NOVEMBER 5 – DECEMBER 6, 2015
Family bonds are strained when a local high school football star is forced to make a decision about his mainland school scholarship.
“PROVE TO ME HOW BAD YOU WANT THIS. YOU GOTTA BE HUNGRY TO PLAY.”
Boy Kahalewai is living the dream: a Division I football scholarship at a mainland college, a chance to play pro, and a loving family back home. But as he struggles with intense pressure from his father and awakens to his Hawaiian roots, Boy starts to wonder whose dream he’s been living all along.
Tammy Haili‘ōpua Baker, the pioneering author of Lā‘ieikawai and Kamapua‘a, returns to Kumu Kahua after more than 15 years with a funny, deeply-rooted story of fathers, sons, and modern Hawaiian identity.
