Mai Poina: The Overthrow, Sept. 17 at the MACC
Following last year’s powerful, Trial of a Queen, the Hawai‘i Pono‘ī Coalition brings Mai Poina: The Overthrow to the MACC on Saturday, Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the McCoy Studio Theater.
This theatrical production tells the story of the tumultuous last four days of the Hawaiian monarchy from the perspective of the people most concerned: native Hawaiians and other citizens of the kingdom.
Newly conceived for the MACC, history comes alive to inform and inspire. An open discussion with Hawaiian scholars follows the performance.
The play is presented by the Hawai‘i Pono‘ī Coalition, which is an apolitical and nonpartisan consortium of Hawaiian-serving organizations founded in 2007 to educate those who live in and visit the islands about Hawai’i’s true history, the Hawaiian people, and their culture.
Tickets are $28 (plus applicable fees) and are available online.
