Constellations by Nick Payne

Directed by Kevin Keaveney

Starring: Eden Lee Murray and Chris Jaymes


Suppose that life exists in a multiverse — a set of parallel existences that contain infinitely different futures. The possibilities in our lives are, quite literally, endless. Every possible event that could happen, does happen, in one universe or another. And if two lovers meet — are drawn together in every version of existence — every possible happy ending and heartbreak that could befall them, will.

“…a singular astonishment, at once eloquent and mysterious …a wholly satisfying and complete emotional journey.” —The New Yorker

KOA Theater – New Space, Same Great Entertainment!

We’ve got big things planned in the upcoming months. Our 8-play season includes the kind of thought-provoking, side-splitting, hit-you-in-the-feels kind of shows for which KOA Theater (formerly Kailua Onstage Arts) is becoming known. Add to that a Circus Workshop for kids, Stand-up Comedy, Staged Readings, a Concert Series, Improv, Classes, and of course we’re planning 2022’s best and scariest Haunted House attraction!

We’ve got big ambitions for our space, including building out a 100-seat Mainstage theater, and a smaller 50-seat Black Box performance space. Big ambitions aren’t cheap, and no amount of help is too small!
