In 2016, the Hawaii State Theatre Council and HittingTheStage.com joined forces to create a source of information about Hawaii's local theatres and the community of playwrights, directors, crewmembers, actors, volunteers, and audience that support it. Welcome to our new website!

Living Room

Kumu Kahua Theatre

January 18-February 17

Thu-Sat at 8pm, Sun 2pm

Eli’s family and friends are well-meaning, but they won’t leave him alone as he wrestles with his troubled past and uncertain future.  Millie, Rose, Fannie and Junior haunt Eli with their concerns until they nearly drive him crazy.  Eli’s indomitable sense of humor and a handsome stranger may be his saving grace in this comedy about the drama one local man faces alone in a crowded room.

This play is a semi-autobiographical piece that was written by Kahele as a result of beginning and advanced playwriting classes offered at Kumu Kahua Theatre by Tammy Haili‘opua Baker.
