Kumu Kahua Theatre will present “Shoyu on Rice” by Scot Izuka on Friday and Saturday, April 24 and 25, at 7:30 p.m. in the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s McCoy Studio Theater.

The play takes place in the mid-1980s. Students attending a Catholic all-boys high school deal with their use of pidgin English when a substitute teacher from Kansas takes over their classroom. Meanwhile, the substitute struggles to learn local ways in both the classroom and in the home of her Japanese-American fiancé’s parents.

Preshow dinner catered by AK’s Cafe [2].
