Playwrights' Arena present 'Southernmost', a new play by Mary Lyon Kamitaki. Runs April 5-29.
When his daughter Charlene brings her girlfriend home for a vacation, Wally Chaves is surprised to find her different from the girl he remembers. He is taken aback at her modern, mainland lifestyle as well as her refusal to support his latest venture: a coffee farm in their backyard. His determination clashes with her resistance, both to the coffee and her rural Hawaiian roots. Faced with the threat of an impending lava flow and his family’s insistence that he retire, Wally must embrace a new vision for his future, or risk losing everything.
