Since May, when we were notified of our selection to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2011, we have been blessed many times over with the outpouring of support from the public and businesses. Donations have come from all over the state and as far away as Texas. We are humbled and grateful for the support from everyone in our Journey to Scotland.
We hope that this blog will keep you informed of our process in getting to Scotland as well as the play we will be performing: "Ma'i Ho'oka'awale: The Separating Sickness" which tells the stories of the many patients of Kalaupapa who suffered from Hansen's Disease and were exiled to Kalaupapa. The play is adapted from the book by Ted Gugelyk and Milton Bloombaum.
Of course, when we leave on July 31, 2011 for London, we will be posting updates on our experiences.
What a journey it has been and still continues to be.
