The PlayBuilders Festival returns to Kumu Kahua Theatre this week with eight new plays, with stories ranging from Hawaii-based tales to national and even international dramas. Several plays are taken from historical events, including “Children of Isfahan” by University of Hawaii grad student Maseeh Ganjali.
Primus, the alternative punk/metal/thrash band once described as “quite possibly the strangest top-10 band ever,” comes to The Republik next week, led by bassist/vocalist Les Claypool.
