Hawaii Theatre stages world premiere of EDDIE WEN' GO

Hawaii Theatre stages world premiere of EDDIE WEN' GO

While most adults in Hawaii know the story behind the words, Eddie Would Go, for a generation of youngsters, it’s likely just a curious bumper sticker. Now the story of Eddie Aikau’s legendary heroism will come to life for young audiences and their families as Hawaii Theatre Center, in collaboration with the University of Hawaii-Manoa’s Department of Theatre + Dance, stages the world premiere of Eddie Wen’ Go, The Story of the Upside-Down Canoe from September 16-20, 2014 at the Hawaii Theatre.

Adapted for stage by Marion Lyman-Mersereau from her inspirational children’s book of the same title, Eddie Wen’ Go employs life-sized sea creature puppets to recount the heroic sacrifice of crewmember Eddie Aikau during the fateful 1978 voyage of the Polynesian voyaging canoe Hōkūleʻa, after it capsized in the Kaiwi Channel, 10 miles from land, leaving the desperate crew, including Lyman-Mersereau, clinging onto the canoe’s hull for life.
