Fa'alavelave “The Interruption” by Kiki Rivera

November 7-December 8, 2019

Kumu Kahua Theatre proudly presents Fa'alavelave “The Interruption” by Kiki Rivera, directed by Reiko Ho, running November 7 – December 8, 2019. 

Fa'alavelave “The Interruption” continues the story of Mele, the primary character in Rivera and Victor Roger’s one-act play Puzzy, which premiered in Kumu Kahua Theatre’s 46th season.

Sefina and Mele are in love, their engagement and deep bond reinforced by their shared Samoan heritage.  When they suddenly find themselves tangled in a web of hidden truths, denial and lies, their future together is threatened.  Fa'alavelave “The Interruption” tackles a darkly taboo topic with humor in a queer Samoan context. 

Following the performance on Friday, November 15th there will be a free talk story with the playwright, directors and cast following the performance.  These talk stories are offered on the 2nd Friday of each production run and include an opportunity to gain behind the scenes insight from the director, cast and playwright (when available).
