The MACC will be collecting non-perishable donations for the Maui Food Bank during this event. We ask that our patrons bring items for those impacted by the wildfires. Donation bins will be located near the MACC's main entry gates.


Past and present collide as Stevie returns home from college and uncovers hidden truths about her family. Devastated, she begins to experience and unravel the inter-generational trauma that haunts them all.
Her struggle to release old ghosts and claim her place — and her kuleana — will determine whether she and her ʻohana survive intact, or at all.

Alani Apio grew up in Pu‘uloa - also known as ‘Ewa Beach - in a family of fishermen. He graduated from Kamehameha Schools and the UHM, with a degree in Drama and Theatre. Now, he lives in Kailua and grows some of his own food in his backyard, “’Cause no more ‘nuff fish around nowadays.”
Apio is a noted Hawaiian playwright, sculptor, and actor. His plays Kāmau and its sequels Kāmau A’e and Ua Pau tackle complex issues related to Hawaiian identity and family relationships.
He’s a founding and current board member of Hui Aloha (huialoha.org) and works as a community consultant for companies on sustainability projects and projects that have potential Native Hawaiian burial issues.
