Fishing For Wives

A World Premiere by Edward Sakamoto


“She comes here to marry a poor fisherman with no future. Something fishy here.”

It’s 1913 and two Big Island fishermen realize they have women problems. Lonely and bored with catching fish, Nishi sends for a picture bride from Japan, but sneaks a photo of his handsome friend Aoki in his place. The bride arrives and falls in love — with the wrong man — setting off a comic battle of the sexes.

Our most prolific playwright and the author of It’s All Relative and Aloha Las Vegas, Edward Sakamoto finds laughter and warmth in this loving portrait of historic Hawai‘i.
