A darkly comic exploration of the fa’a sāmoa, where family, leadership and legacy converge in spectacular chaos.

In Sāmoa’s not-so-distant past, Pili Sā Tauilevā is a proud Ali’i (chief) in the village of Moa. He has devoted his life to the sacred fa’a sāmoa tradition of service. When he suddenly falls gravely ill and refuses to name a successor, his daughter and son become rivals for the title.

O le Pepelo, le Gaoi, ma le Pala’ai | The Liar, the Thief, and the Coward is a bilingual, modern tale of a man whose time is running out. Who then will survive?

O se fatuga fa’amālie e au’ili’ili ai le Fa’a-Sāmoa, ma le gaogaosā pe a feiloa’i aiga, ta’ita’i ma talatu’u.

O vaitaimi e le’i leva atu i Samoa, sa iai Pili Sā Tauilevā o se Ali’i (matai) mitamitavale mai le afio’aga o Moa. Ua tu’u atoa lona ola ma le malosi i le tausisia o agaifanua Fa’a-Sāmoa. Na faaulumalō e leai ma se isi e sui tulaga ia te ia ina ua fa’afuase’i le ma‘i tigaina, ma ua vevesi lona afafine ma le atali’i i le suafa matai.

E lua gagana o fa’amatalaina ai le tala fatu fa’aonaponei O le Pepelo, le Gaoi, ma le Pala’ai | The Liar, the Thief, and the Coward i se tamaloa ua fai ifo lona malosi. O ai a tulai mai?
