Pakalolo Sweet
Come hang out with Uncle Makana and his 'ohana for a fun karaoke party!

Meet Junior Boy, a young man who comes from a lineage of pakalolo growers on the North Shore of Oahu. He is proudly expecting a baby with his girlfriend, Nani. At home he talks story with his girlfriend, best friend, and grandfather during a night of karaoke, beer, and weed. The medical uses, benefits, and cultural aspects of marijuana in precontact Hawaii are explored. What follows is unexpected and heartbreaking as we witness Junior Boy's struggle to do what he believes is best for his 'ohana.

This prequel to Not One Batu follow's Uncle Makanas (Papa) family and is the second in Ii-Epstein's trilogy of drug plays set on the North Shore of O'ahu. Pakalolo Sweet had its debut run at Kumu Kahua Theatre in Honolulu in 2018 and will have its mainland premiere here in Chicago in September 2019.

Pakalolo Sweet is produced by Nothing Without a Company in association with Aloha Center Chicago
