Kamau, first produced by Kumu Kahua for its 1994 summer tour of the Islands, was described by Honolulu advertiser theater critic Joseph Rozmiarek as a moving and powerful piece on the nature of personal and cultural compromise. The story centers around alika, a Hawaiian man who works as a guide for a local tour company to support his adopted family. His employer offers alika a promotion, at the same time informing him that the company has purchased and plans to build a hotel on the oceanfront land where alika's family has lived and fished for generations. Weighed down with responsibilities and confused by alcohol, alika struggles with his conscience as he considers his alternatives. No pat answers or one-dimensional characters are offered in Kamau (which means to persevere) as the playwright explores the complex interrelationships, moral ambiguities, and harsh realities of life in contemporary Hawaii.
