The Neighborhood Place hangs out ‘Family Laundry’

Play by the late Tremaine Tamayose uses pidgin humor and recognizable characters to shed light on problems of alcoholism, underage drinking

The Neighborhood Place of Wailuku's humorous, courageous musical production "Family Laundry" brings to light an issue which affects many island families: alcoholism and underage drinking. The story revolves around a local family and, through exploring each family member's struggles and triumphs, joys and sorrows, demonstrates how important it is not to sweep the issue aside like so much dirty laundry. Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes every person in an islandwide ohana to address problems and help to heal them.
