A world premiere by Scot Izuka

Peer pressure and identity issues create comedy and drama in a private Hawaii high school.

In the mid-1980s, boys 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 the home of her Japanese-American fiancé’s parents. And a student from a private girl’s school faces the scorn of the boys due to rumors about her reputation.
