by Dennis Carroll with additional narration from Honor Killing by Dr.David Stannard. Performed by WCC Students. "Massie/Kahahawai" is the story of race, poverty, a justice system which favors the wealthy and the unsung heroes who risked everything to do the right thing.

The iniquitous events surrounding the Massie case influenced and changed Hawai'i. Based on court records, newspaper articles, and other witness testimony it recounts the infamous Thalia Massie case in pre-statehood Hawai'i. "Massie/Kahahawai" is a fast-paced, disturbing play dealing with race relations in the still segregated, iniquitous world of the early 1930s Honolulu. [Due to adult situations and themes, this play is recommended for ages 14+ and older.] Running time is on hour and 25 minutes. Tickets: $5.00 Students/Senior/Military $10.00 General Admission
