Kumu Kahua Theatre will present a revival by Alani Apio of KAMAU A'E from May 31st through July 1st.

The Hawaiian Sovereignty movement, with its complexities and controversies, takes the stage in this powerful drama. Fresh out of prison, Michael Kawaipono Mahekona joins a group of activists on a mission to reclaim Hawaiian land. As the group splinters over whether to stand firm or compromise on its principles, Michael must decide how to stay true to what he believes.

First produced in 1997, KAMAU A'E returns to Kumu Kahua, sharing its message with a new generation of audiences.

Performances will take place on Thursday, Friday & Saturday at 8pm (May 31; June 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30, 2012) and on Sundays at 2pm (June 3, 10, 17, 24; July 1, 2012).

The mission of Kumu Kahua Theatre is to provide theatrical opportunities for the expression of local community lifestyles, whether contemporary or historical; to stage locally written plays set in Hawai'i or dealing with some aspect of the Hawaiian experience of residents; to provide training and theatrical experiences for local playwrights, directors, performers and other theatrical artists; and to develop an increasingly large audience sensitive to plays and theatre pieces dealing specifically and truthfully with local subject matter.
