About This Event

Written and Directed by MFA Candidate Ākea Kahikina\ \ Set in a pre-pandemic Hawai‘i upon the luxurious slopes of Lēʻahi, Hoʻoilina is a farcical hana keaka that knocks on the door of a Kanaka Maoli family anxiously poised for a will reading that will determine the fate of a huge inheritance from their beloved matriarch. Just as the will is about to be read, a quirky stranger appears at the door, claiming her right to the hefty endowment. As chaos ensues, family secrets are revealed, causing the family to question their own relationships, identity, and future as Kanaka while being insidiously constricted by the pressures of capitalism and cultural loss. Hoʻoilina is an ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i (Hawaiian language) production.\ \ *******ADVISORY: Patrons ages 5 and up must show proof of completed COVID19 vaccination and comply with all UHM and Kennedy Theatre COVID19 prevention protocols including but not limited to wearing a CDC approved mask over the nose and mouth at all times inside Kennedy Theatre********
