The world premiere of the play opened on 10th April, 2014 and will end on 27th April.
Fishing for Wives is produced by the Kumu Kahua Theatre, a Honolulu-based company founded in 1971 by a group of graduate students of the University of Hawaii. The idea behind opening a theatre company in Honolulu was to give the locals a platform to express their community lifestyles. Initially, the theatre was dedicated to preserving the culture of the area through story-telling and other theatrical mediums. It has been more than four years now that Kumu Kahua Theatre has been giving voice to the Hawaiian community by developing plays that are either set in Hawaii or deal with some Hawaiian experience. In short, the Kumu Kahua Theatre produces plays for Hawaiian people, written by Hawaiian playwrights about the everyday life of people in Hawaii.
Kumu Kahua Theatre also provides training facilities and opportunities to local performers, directors and theatre artists. With its brilliant productions like “Twelf Night O Whateva!” and “Folks You Meet in Longs,” the theatre has acquired a huge fan base in Hawaii and other areas where Hawaiian community lives. Among the famous Hawaiian playwrights that have written plays for the theatre are Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl, Edward Sakamoto, Lee A. Tonouchi and Lee Cataluna. The theatre also hosts the annual Maoli Film Festival. The festival features the Hawaiian filmmakers and writers who use various mediums to share Hawaiian culture.
Edward Sakamoto, the playwright, is famous for his command of comedy, passionate characters and powerful lines. This is his nineteenth play and the fifteen that has been produced by Kumu Kahua Theatre. His last play that premiered at Kumu Kahua Theatre was Mahalo Las Vegas. Winner of Hawai'i Award for Literature, Sakamoto has also won Po'okela Awards for two of his plays. His plays have been staged at prestigious venues like Pan Asian Repertory Theatre in New York City, East West Players in Los Angeles and others. Graduate of the University of Hawaii, Sakamoto has been the recipient of an NEA grant and Rockefeller American Playwrights in Residence Fellowship.
Sakamoto's latest play tells the story of a single fisherman named Takeo Nishi who is desperate to get a Japanese wife. Set in 1913 at a Hawaiian island, the play begins when Nishi reveals that he has sent the photograph of Aoki, his handsome friend, to get the attention of the prospective bride. Nishi and Aoki are fishermen who have emigrated from Japan and are now living on an island in Hawaii. Bored of fishing, Nishi only thinks of getting married. However everyone, including Nishi knows that with his looks no woman is going to marry him. In order to get an attractive wife, he sneaks Aoki's photo into a letter to have a beautiful bride sent from Japan.
Nishi gets successful in getting a beautiful bride, Yamamoto, who is on her way from Japan to meet him. Although she reluctantly marries him, Yamamoto is in love with Aoki and tries her best to not let any other woman come in between them. But the play takes a turn when Nishi is caught in an unfortunate boat accident. Theatre goers can catch the amazing cast of the play as it engages in 'a comic battle of sexes' by getting the Fishing for Wives tickets in advance.
