Living Room by William Kahele
HONOLULU, HI—Kumu Kahua Theatre proudly presents the world premiere of Living Room by William (Wil) Kahele. This thoughtful comedy is also Kahele’s world premiere as a playwright.

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.

Wil Kahele says “My grandmother told me a lot of stories when I was growing up. She made me believe anything was possible. My other grandmother was a bit more practical and tried to enforce the attributes of hard work. I learned from both of these strong women that there are positives and negatives in their perspectives of child rearing, and I survived them, but not without some bumps and bruises along the way.”

The play is a thoughtful comedy that contains some adult themes and language.
