Presented online, reserve your ticket at Told backward in time during the 2000s, featuring the traditional trickster god Letao, ‘other: a micro-story  illustrates the challenge of fitting into a new world faced by the Marshallese in Hawai‘i, who arrived dreaming of a future for their families.   Notorious trickster Letao shepherds both audience and actors alike through this backward theatrical journey of Abija and Hirlynn, two Marshall Islands youth, who set off for America and face challenges fitting into a frustratingly abstruse world.  As the young islanders discover unexpected truths about their island home and encounter cultural misconceptions, Letao dispenses occasional—and occasionally uninvited—insights and interruptions in his enthusiastic craving to showcase the contradictions of humans and humanity.
