As a survivor of domestic violence, the local play “If You Love Me” hit home on a deeply emotional level.  Keali`iwahine’s writing and message were spot-on, and the [mostly young] local cast was phenomenal.  I am still personally processing so much on my own after seeing this powerful play.  Social change through the arts!

What have you been diggin’ lately?
