Flowers of Hawai‘i includes the title play and three others (Aloha Attire, The Great Kaua‘i Train Robbery, and Uncle’s Regularly Scheduled Garage Party is Cancelled Tonight) by Hawai‘i’s most prolific contemporary playwright, Lee Cataluna.

Cataluna’s plays have been produced at Diamond Head Theatre, Honolulu Theatre for Youth, Kennedy Theatre at the University of Hawai‘i, and most often at Kumu Kahua Theatre. Her work has also been workshopped in Hawai‘i and on the mainland. She is also well known from her days as a television broadcaster, as a featured columnist in local newspapers, as a teacher at ‘Iolani School, and as a comedy writer. Her first play, Da Mayah, was produced at Kumu Kahua, and later published in He Leo Hou: A New Voice—Hawaiian Playwrights (Bamboo Ridge#83). Bamboo Ridge Press also published Cataluna’s Folks You Meet in Longs (BR#86) and Three Years on Doreen’s Sofa (BR #99)
