Sons of Maui

Monday, July 24, 7:00 p.m.

By Lee Cataluna

Directed by Bill English

Sons of Maui asks about the relevance of ancient Polynesian myths in modern Hawaii. Maui, the demi-god and trickster, was a hero in the Pacific long before Disney and Dwayne Johnson got a hold of him. This play places Maui in contemporary Maui and asks what a deity like him would do with himself in the modern world. It is a story about traditional roles versus evolved ideas that questions what remains of culture on an island overbuilt with strip-malls and WalMarts. It is also a story about a very complicated family situation and people who struggle to find their own definition of aloha.
