Naomi Iizuka’s
"Aloha, Say the Pretty Girls"
At The Factory Theatre

The lives of strangers and friends, lovers, and acquaintances are about to collide in New York, Alaska, and Hawaii.

"Aloha, Say the Pretty Girls," being presented by Holland Productions at The Factory Theatre from March 27 - April 4, was first produced at the Actors' Theatre of Louisville's Humana Festival, and from there has found a home in fringe theaters across the US. The Factory Theatre is located at 791 Tremont Street in Boston's South End.

Naomi Iizuka’s comedy follows young Generation X-ers in their quest for love and identity. A woman moves to Alaska after being dumped by her boyfriend. A writer struggles to write the great American Novel. A businessman misses his flight and ends up on the beaches of Hawaii. Meanwhile, babies, wild dogs, komodo dragons, an Incan mummy and hula dancers abound.

Winner of the 1999 Whiting Writers' Award, the play has been described as "witty" and "stunningly original." Iizuka, whose work also includes "36 Views," "Tattoo Girl," and "Polaroid Stories," is a recipient of the Alpert Award in the Arts and the PEN/Laurel Pels Foundation Award for Drama.

Directed by Krista D’Agostino, Producing Artistic Director of Holland Productions, the cast includes Mac Young, Victor Shopov, Mel Pharr, Bob Musset, Mary-Liz Murray, Kenny Fuentes, Mikey DiLoreto, Natalie Cowell, Carolyn Charpie, Maura Canepa, and Gideon Bautista.
