Playwright Lee Cataluna shares her love for the written and spoken word

Hawaiʻi Public Radio

The anthology "Flowers of Hawaiʻi and Other Plays" by Lee Cataluna is a collection of her work as a playwright. Underscoring all of her writing is a strong current of exploring family ties. The Conversation talked with Cataluna about how she came to understand the world, her journey as a playwright, and the connection between writer and audience.

One of her early plays, "The Folks You Meet At Longs," will be a hana hou show at Kumu Kahua theater next month from May 25 through June 25.
