Pakalolo Sweet by Hannah Li-Epstein

Kumu Kahua Theatre

46 Merchant Street
Honolulu, HI 96813
United States

Meet Junior Boy, a pakalolo grower set to take over his family business in the North Shore of O’ahu. At home, one evening, he talks story about his job and marijuana legalization with his pregnant girlfriend, best friend, and grandfather. As the night progresses, Junior Boy’s father arrives with terrible news about their grow operation and questions if Junior Boy is at fault. What follows is unexpected and heartbreaking as we witness Junior Boy’s struggle to do what he believes is best for his o’hana. PAKALOLO SWEET is the second one-act in Ii-Epstein’s trilogy of drug exploration plays set in the North Shore of O’ahu. Opening and threaded through with lanai karaoke, this play explores Uncle Makana’s o’hana who was introduced in the first one-act, NOT ONE BATU.
