About this event

by Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl

Jan 20 - Feb 20, 2022

When Lucy Thurston and Sybil Bingham arrive on the shores of Oʻahu in 1820, a year after Queen Kaʻahumanu overthrew the traditional kapu system in ancient Hawaiʻi, they immediately attempt their missionary task. Queen Kaʻahumanu, however, is more interested in their dresses than any new god and has no desire for any new religion. Sybil and Lucy persevere, and so begins the slow, gradual process of Kaʻahumanu’s conversion. This complex historical drama explores the official adoption of Christianity in Hawaiʻi.

There will be a talk back with the cast and crew on Friday , January 28, 2022.
