The first act is a series of stories about Pele and her companions, beginning with Pele's arrival on Kaua`i, in a canoe pursued by her angry older sister, Na-Maka-O-Kaha`i, goddess of the sea. Pele herself is a refugee from her homeland, which she has set afire. Also included in the first act are several stories about the pig demigod, Kamapua`a. The second act focuses on the risqué love triangle between Pele, her sister Hi`iaka and Kaua`i chief Lohiau. Although Pele is most often associated with the Big Island, these stories remind us that the Pele legends have a strong link to the island of Kaua'i. The play was adapted by John Wat, Laurel Nakanishi, and Kennly Asato, Pele Mā is a narrative theater adaptation based on the book "Pele Mā: Legends of Pele from Kaua`i" (Bamboo Ridge Press, 2001) by Frederick Wichman. The show was directed by John Wat.
