HONOLULU, HI A new comedy by local favorite, Lee Cataluna, runs through July at Kumu Kahua Theatre.
Uncle's regularly scheduled garage party is cancelled for the first time in -- ever! The usual attendees show up and process their shock over the cancellation-- while they eat, drink, talk story and play music. Uncle isn't saying why the party is cancelled, but everyone has a theory. Is it illness? Financial troubles? Marital discord? Gambling problem? Eviction? Erosion of societal values and loss of culture? Or is Aunty just sick and tired of all their shenanigans?
The old friends spend the evening telling stories, laughing and sharing food. But its not a party, because Uncle's regularly scheduled garage party is CANCELLED tonight!
This show is directed by Harry Wong III and Wil Kahele and features many popular local actors, including many who were seen in Lee Catalunas Flowers of Hawaii, presented in 2015.
