“Mr. Sakamoto's gift is absolute command of language…lines have the power of poetry… passionate characters… share a wisdom that ought to be common but mostly eludes us because none of us can talk about it so well.”-The New York Times

It’s 1913, Hawaii and two immigrant fishermen, Nishi and Aoki, are lonely and bored with only catching fish. Nishi sends for a picture bride from Japan, but sneaks a photo of his handsome friend in his place. The brides arrive and fall in love — with the wrong man — setting off  a comedy of errors with mistaken identity, tragic drowning, seeming betrayal and a final surprise turn of events, colorfully visualized with mime and movement. Like Horton Foote whose family dramas define Texas country life, septuagenarian Sakamoto, specializes in the rich fabric of Hawaiian myth and language in exploration of migration and family dynamics

EDWARD SAKAMOTO (Playwright) returns to Pan Asian Repertory Theatre with FISHING FOR WIVES, his nineteenth play in a career spanning five decades. His plays have been staged in various venues, including East West Players in Los Angeles, Kumu Kahua Theatre in Hawai'i and in cities like Sacramento, San Francisco, Stockton, etc. In 1998 Sakamoto received the Hawai'i Award for Literature, the highest literary honor presented by the Hawai'i State Council. Then Gov. Cayetano presented the award to Sakamoto in a special ceremony at the Hawai'l State Capitol. He received Po'okela theater awards for ALOHA LAS VEGAS and OUR HEARTS WERE TOUCHED WITH FIRE. During his career he was awarded the Rockefeller Foundation Playwright in Residence grant. He was graduated from the University of Hawai'i with a B.A. degree in English. He worked thirty years as a newspaperman spending twenty years as a copy editor at the Los Angeles Times.
