Aloha Theatre’s inaugural production in our new series Voices from the Ring of Fire. Plays in the Voices series will feature Hawaiʻi playwrights and themes of interest to our island community. We are delighted that our first installment is by Honolulu playwright Daniel Akiyama; his work explores the tug-of-war between progress and preservation, the selfish and the selfless.
A Cage of Fireflies is the story of three elderly sisters of the kibei generation: sent as children to be raised in Okinawa, then returned to live and work in Hawai‘i. Two of the sisters confine themselves to their Honolulu apartment where they enact the rituals of daily life and dream of one day returning to Okinawa. The third, charged with running their family’s orchid nursery, embraces the modern world and disrupts her family’s fragile traditions. As long-hidden hopes, resentments and regrets surface, the sisters must confront the nature of their love for each other.
Are your friends laughing with you, not at you?
Make sure that’s the case with our single-day crash course workshop, All Around Improv this Sunday, August 25, from 6:00pm-9:00pm!
Perfect for adults with experience looking to refresh their comedic skills, and just as perfect for those with zero experience that want to build confidence and test the waters of Improv in a fun, supportive environment!
