Kauai Community Players presents Going Home by David Penhallow-Scott, the final play of Penhallow-Scott’s masterful series of four plays. The quartet of plays – Banzai Darling, Emma’s Last Dance, Matilda’s Waltz and now the final play Going Home – have told the story of plantation life in Hawaii before the attack on Pearl Harbor and the years that followed the Japanese bombing. In the fourth and final episode, Going Home, World War II has ended and Eudora, the play’s protagonist and widow of the manager of Aiea Plantation on Oahu, struggles to make a new life for herself against powerful forces trying to stifle her new independence. She was forced into this role, being a post- World War II independent woman, because she now lives in a new Hawaii she does not recognize. The Hawaii that Eudora once knew is in the midst of new beginnings and endings. The once powerful sugar plantations in Hawaii are now going out of business and the life that Eudora lived in Banzai, Darling and Emma’s Last Dance has now disappeared.
Going Home, an exciting, historic, romantic play by David Penhallow-Scott, promises to surprise and transport the audience back in time to 1946 Hawaii. Steve Whitney, the play’s innovative director, has assembled an outstanding cast that includes: Jennifer Cullen, Fredan Alfonso, Dottie Bekeart, Jarhett Gaines, Matt Feeser, Erin Gaines, and Stacy Ramos.
The production team includes Sam Whitney as Lighting Designer/Technical Director, Noah Cabello as Assistant Director and Costumer Barbara Green.
