Darrell H.Y. Lum’s Play at Kumu Kahua Theatre is Both Funny and Sensitive

Commentary

In our lives, somewhere . . . sometime . . . we’ve all known someone like “Bobo.” Someone mentally handicapped, but sweet and pure-hearted. And maybe even a little tricky-smart in his or her own way.

It was that kind of person that inspired Darrell H.Y. Lum’s 1972 short story, “Da Beer Can Hat” — now a play — which is in its final weekend at Kumu Kahua Theatre. If you haven’t seen it yet, go see it! The play closes this Sunday, June 23, with only a 2 p.m. matinee performance that day.
