Description of the Play + Upcoming Showtimes
DEMIGODS ANONYMOUS : A WORLD PREMIERE BY NOA HELELA
MARCH 22 – APRIL 22, 2018
Power is both a curse and a gift. As a modern demigod, Noe takes college courses, parties with her friends, and tries to stop herself from turning into a giant lizard. Her friend, Marcella, is dealing with her unwanted tendency to become a mountain lion; Blaine transforms into a shark when aggravated. These contemporary Kupua are like most people in their 20s… except for their ability to manifest ancient demigod powers and transform into animals…
