Kaiulani Lee is the actress and writer of A Sense of Wonder, a play based on the life and works of pioneering environmentalist Rachel Carson. Lee portrays Carson circa 1963, just as her book Silent Spring begins to garner significant public attention. Lee has performed A Sense of Wonder for 15 years. She first performed the play for POST in 1997 and is back by popular demand. The play—made up of primarily Carson's own words—focuses on Silent Spring as well as aspects of Carson’s private life not often examined. Lee has performed the play at more than 100 universities, the Smithsonian Institute and the Sierra Club’s Centennial. She performed A Sense of Wonder on Capitol Hill in May 2007 to commemorate Carson’s 100th birthday, and Bill Moyers Journal devoted a full hour in September 2007 to Carson, Lee and A Sense of Wonder. Lee has been nominated for the Drama Desk Award on Broadway and has won the OBIE Award for outstanding achievement off-Broadway.
