Kumu Kahua Theatre will present My Boy He Play Ball in the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s McCoy Studio Theater on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 26 and 27, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

My Boy He Play Ball is a funny, deeply-rooted story of fathers, sons and modern Hawaiian identity written by pioneering author Tammy Haili‘ōpua Baker.

The play is about Boy Kahalewai, who is living the dream; he received a Division-1 football scholarship at a Mainland college, has a chance to play pro, with a loving family back home.

But as he struggles with intense pressure from his father and awakens to his Hawaiian roots, Boy starts to wonder whose dream he’s been living all along.

Tickets are $28 (plus applicable fees). Buy tickets online or call (808) 242-SHOW (7469).
