Eric Stack works as a banana harvester for the big banana tycoons of Puna, Hawai'i. This labor provides the oppressive atmosphere necessary to create plays of a jaundiced nature. Several of these plays have been produced at the local university to mixed reviews. (One play created such an uproar, Mr. Stack was ostracized from associating with the English Department.) In his spare time, Mr. Stack grows roses and performs hula.
