PlayBuilders of Hawaiʻi Theater Company is holding the world premiere of the play Dragon Fly: The Journey of a Young Local Girl in Foster Care. The play was written by Terri Madden in collaboration with Hawaii’s Foster Care Community, with music by Apu Turano and Layla Kilolu (rap lyrics by Michelle Martin). Directed by William Haʻo, Dragonfly is about a young girl named Tara who is removed from her biological mother at the age of 4, and spends much of her childhood running from place to place, searching for family, only to find that, in the end, only she holds the key to forgiveness which ultimately allows her to form a stable family of her own.
