‘Fishing for Wives’

March 21, 2013
The Maui Weekly

On Friday, March 22, and Saturday, March 23, Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC) will present two showcases of Kumu Kahua Theatre's "Fishing for Wives"--a new comedy by playwright and author Edward Sakamoto.

A prolific playwright and the author of "It's All Relative" and "Aloha Las Vegas," Sakamoto finds laughter and affection in his newest play, a loving portrait of Hawai'i's rich, multi-ethnic history. In "Fishing for Wives," the setting is 1913 and two Hawai'i Island fishermen realize they have women problems. Lonely and bored, Nishi sends for a picture bride from Japan, but sneaks a photo of his handsome friend, Aoki, in his place. The bride agrees to the arrangement, arrives on the island and falls in love--with the wrong man--setting off a comic battle of the sexes.

Harry Wong III directs "Fishing for Wives." Justin Fragiao plays the fisherman, Aoki; Daniel Nishida plays Nishi, the fisherman; Britni "Lolli" Keltz plays Miki, Aoki's wife no. 3; and Michelle Hunter portrays Shizuko, Nishi's wife.
