WHO/WHAT: #iambadatthis, a generation-defining comedy by Susan Soon He Stanton and directed by Harry Wong III, takes the stage as the final show for Kumu Kahua Theatre’s 45th season. As the name implies, this show embraces current trends in communication, and the fall-out of those trends.
Returning home after trying to make it in New York, Emily tries to re-start her life in Hawai‘i. Connected to the world through every electronic luxury, her un-plugged fantasy life bars her from a reality that might offer her a deeper sense of relationship and humanity.
Despite her daily communication with her parents, when she comes face-to-face with them, she realizes that she doesn’t really know more than the facade she’s created in her mind. After receiving one of the best educations available to an American woman, she invests her time in a wide but shallow pool of endeavor . . . accomplishing nothing.
WHEN/WHERE: Through June 26. Show times are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Kumu Kahua Theatre is located at 46 Merchant St.
