Aloha! Our most recent Writers Gallery reading was THREE YEAR SWIM CLUB by Lee Tonouchi on March 24, 2011.

About the play:

Set on the island of Maui in the 1930’s, this play tells the true story of Coach Soichi Sakamoto, who trained swimmers in the irrigation ditches of sugar cane plantations, some of whom went on to become Olympic champions.
