Aloha Las Vegas

Location: Performing Arts Center

ALOHA LAS VEGAS
By Edward Sakamoto
Directed by Justina Mattos
Thursday ÔÇô Saturday, April 12 ÔÇô 14, 2018 @ 7:30pm & Sunday, April 15, 2018 @ 2:00pm

Aloha Las Vegas centers on a retired baker, land rich but cash poor, who wrestles with the decision to relocate to Las Vegas in 1994. Sakamoto is quick to challenge easy affirmations and identifications. Beneath their feel-good humor and celebration of local language and culture, the play has a depth and an unpredictability. As Dennis Carroll observes in his Introduction, the play centers on the theme of "Hawai'i versus the mainland" and the challenges of relocation--the ambiguities of the definition of "home" and whether it can ever be recovered or regained--and the special qualities of local life that can or cannot be transplanted. This theme is relevant to all Americans familiar with the immigrant experience, not only those living in Hawai'i. This comedy comes to the UH Hilo Performing Arts Center stage for the first time.
