Play/Comedy: Kenyan Hustlers and Gatherers, Jun. 17-29 2014 @ Alliance Française Auditorium

Kenyan Hustlers and Gatherers, a Heartstrings Entertainment production

Dates: June 17 – 29, 2014
Venue: Alliance Française Auditorium
Time: Weekdays 6.30 pm, Weekends 3.00 & 6.30 pm
Tickets: 500/-

Heartstrings Entertainment is back with the big question, are you a hustler or a gatherer? We are not sure who a hustler is anymore. This madly original comedy will make it clear to all of us just who exactly we all are. That half of Kenyans are hustlers and the other half are gatherers. A hustler simply is the handworker who does all the work. A gatherer on the other hand is the one who fraudulently eats the fruits of that work.

The show will hilariously show how the hustlers have decided to leave the gatherers alone by exiting this country in masses to go live in other countries. This is because their fruits of hard work are being eaten by the gatherers. i.e. thieves, robbers, corrupt, liars, philanderers, fornicators, tribalists,

About

On the occasion of the 2014 World Refugee Day, historian Dana April Seidenberg presents a series of photos showing the resilience of Palestinians in the face of perpetual despair in Beirut’s refugee camps of Sabra, Shatilla and Bourj el Bourajneh.

The images are reminiscent of scenes from underserved Nairobi neighborhoods with streets teeming with hawkers and traders, busy surviving on a few shillings a day. But unlike Nairobi, the inhabitants of these camps yearn to return to the land of their ancestors. Some 450,000 refugees are registered with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Lebanon.

These refugees refer to themselves as ‘forgotten people’. Sixty-six years of living in overcrowded camps while managing to survive on limited resources within a restricted legal, economic and social system is a long time to wait!

Is exile without end the way any human being should live?
