Knapp’s Trib­ute To Damien

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - EAST OAHU ISLANDER -

Kaimuki Li­brary will of­fer a spe­cial trib­ute to Hawaii’s first saint this Sun­day, pre­sented by one of Hawaii’s most no­table ac­tors.

Ter­enceK­napp shares “The Life and Legacy of Fa­ther Damien” at 2 p. m. Sun­day in the li­brary’s adult read­ing room. The pro­gram of­fers his own in­sights into the life and strug­gles of the Molokai priest — a role Knapp has been linked to ever since 1976 when Aldyth Mor­ris’s dra­matic mono­logue, Damien, was first staged at Kennedy The­atre.

The one-hour trib­ute is free to the pub­lic and suit­able for all ages. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 733-8422

Born in Lon­don in 1932, Knapp came to Hawaii with a dis­tin­guished the­ater re­sume and con­tin­ued tog­a­r­ner­honors for his stage work. He is a pro­fes­sor emer­i­tus of the­ater at UH Manoa, where he also won the Re­gents Medal of Ex­cel­lence, among other awards.
