PlayBuilders' resident playwright, Mark Tjarks, has taken "Houseless in Paradise" and "The Unsaleable Thing" to the NYC Fringe Festival! We are so proud of Mark and the fact he is taking these plays beyond Hawai'iʻs shores.
“Houseless in Paradise” received Poʻokela Award recognition from the Hawai'i State Theatre Council in 2014, and “The Unsalable Thing” won “Best Play” Award at our annual “The PlayFestival” in 2015. We also presented rehearsed readings of both plays for Hawai'i Pacific University School of Social Workʻs Homeless Awareness Week in 2015 at the ARTS at Marks Garage and Fort Street Mall. We wish Mark, and his entire team the very best as they continue to bring the stories of Hawai'iʻs homeless to life.
