AN ILIAD, by Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare
A Hawaii Premiere!
Long believed, like the dodo, to have vanished forever, the Marx Brothers 1932 radio show, "Flywheel, Shyster, and Flywheel" was the stuff of legend - Comedy's version of the treasure of King Tut, only less tasteful. In 1988 most of the scripts for the series were discovered languishing uselessly in the Library of Congress, a tyrannical place where guffaws, chortles and even the occasional snicker are frowned upon and severely punished. Best of all, the copyright on these scripts has expired, which means Kailua Onstage Arts is proud to present the cheapest laughs available for your pandemic pleasure!
