Photo Flash: Kumu Kahua Theatre's Cane Fields Burning

Cane Fields Burning is showing at Kumu Kahua Theater from Sep 8 - Oct 9, 2011. The show is a world premiere by Kemuel DeMoville. "Something's stirring in The Shadows. Something's coming. Something's waiting."

Ghosts, demons, and dark memories haunt Hawai‘i's plantation fields in this tale of a curse passed down through the generations. An old man has died; as his son and grandson sort through his belongings, the photograph of a beautiful woman exposes the violent secret buried in the old man's past.

The winner of the Kumu Kahua/UH Manoa Playwriting Contest, Cane Fields Burning uses the elegant power of Japanese Noh theatre to tell the story of a family struggling to escape its tortured history.

Thursday, Friday & Saturday 8pm
