'Quiptease' comedy playing at HPU

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The world premiere of Quiptease, a new comedy written by Yokanaan Kearns, award-winning author of Pidg Latin, Dis/Troy, and Maui vs. Hercules, is running at Hawai'i Pacific University's Paul and Vi Loo Theatre.

Just out of college, Gwendolyn is looking forward to an orderly life in Los Angeles: a career, retirement, and death. But her tidy plan for the future unravels quickly when her mother returns from Hawai'i with a boyfriend named Lohi'au. Just when Gwendolyn thinks it can't get worse, her father suddenly declares that he wishes to be called Mr. March, unleashes invective on everyone in sight, and reveals Gwendolyn's most carefully guarded secret: that she yearns for the disorderly life of a poet.
