Kumu Kahua Theatre presents Ua Pau (It is Finished, Over, Destroyed) by Alani Apio directed by Harry Wong III, running August 22 - September 22, 2019.
Alika raised his niece by slaving away at the very hotel that stole his family's land. After 6 years at college, his brother's daughter, Stevie, returns home, a technology wielding millennial. As the future of the family, Stevie must reconcile the emotional destruction within her ohana. When a dark secret is revealed, the results are devastating.
Told in flashbacks from past to present, Alani Apio's third and final play in the Kamau trilogy is a requiem to the enduring effects of Colonialism.
