Fishing for Wives: By Edward Sakamoto
NEW YORK  •  Clurman Theatre  •  Ongoing

Edward Sakamoto:  Fishing for Wives

Pan Asian Repertory Theatre in New York presents itís premiere of Fishing for Wives, a comic battle of the sexes written by Edward Sakamoto and directed by Ron Nakahara. The play is a vintage romantic comedy of errors: Nishi, tired of life as a single fisherman, sends for a picture bride from his native Japan but includes a photo of his handsome friend in his place.  The bride arrives and falls in love- with the wrong bachelor- setting off a comic rivalry and a final surprise turn of events, colorfully visualized against the backdrop of the Hawaiian islands.

The cast of Fishing for Wives stars Hawaii natives Bobby Foley (TVís Hawaii Five-0, Girls) and Viet Vo (TVís Lost) as hapless bachelors Nishi and Aoki, who are joined by Akiko Hiroshima (last seen at Pan Asian in Tea), Allison Hiroto, and Kiyo Takami (Kiyohime in 2013ís production of Dojoji).
