Play: Revenge, Oct. 18-20 2014 @ Alliance Française Auditorium

REVENGE: Tragedy as wife competes with sister-in-law for husband’s love and affection!
Hilarious Murder Mystery Thriller

Dates and time: Sat 18, Sun 19 and Mon 20 at 3, 6 & 8 pm
Venue: Alliance Française Auditorium
Tickets: KES 500

Somewhere between an Agatha Christie mystery and a Hitchcock thriller, spine-tingling Revenge is hilarious yet wonderfully spooky with a good, heart thumping scare… starring Kenya’s superstar actors.

Solicitous husband, Ben Kambi (Nick Ndeda), has decided to take his wife, Kathy Kambi (Fridah Muhindi), upcountry to recover having been discharged from a mental hospital. The situation gets even worse when Hilda Kambi (Liz Ngugi), Ben’s beautiful but manipulative sister arrives. Ben had invited her to help patch up the toxic, deeply-entrenched differences between the two women he dearly loves. Hilda is, however, hell-bent to destroy her sister-in-law. Both women set to outdo each other as they compete for his love! Soon Kathy finds herself tormented by strange sounds in the night, and visions of the vengeful ghost. Is she having another breakdown? Is someone trying to drive her mad? When she tries to defend herself from this apparition, events take an unexpected turn in a night of unimaginable suspense.

Amusingly clueless but extremely heartwarming neighbour, Derrick Karani (Xavier Nato) arrives on the scene. Derrick, who continues to show up at suspiciously appropriate moments, is drawn into the web of conflict…or is he the one fanning it?

And then suddenly the quarrels between the two women explode into violent murder. This appears to be an open-and-shut case of vengeful murder. As the story unfolds, it begins to look like a well planned scheme… and someone somewhere is cleverly orchestrating it as more deaths are witnessed…But nothing seems to be what it is and the ending is as shocking as the story itself!

Between an erratic wife, a suspicious husband, an abnormally hilarious neighbour and a sinister sister-in-law, who will be the last man standing? Deceit, false identity and frenzied cover-up ensue as the drama reaches fever pitch. In fact, the play lathers it on so thickly, that one doesn’t really know whether to laugh, or …be afraid. Be very, very afraid.

Directed by Mbeki Mwalimu. The show is stage managed by Mwajuma Belle and produced by Abuto Eliud

Comedy: Bank Robbery Gone Sour! Sept. 18-21 2014 @ Alliance Francaise

Bank Robbery gone sour!

Dates and Time: Thursday 18 and Friday 19 at 6 & 8pm, Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 at 3, 6 & 8pm
Venue: Alliance Francaise
Tickets: KES @500. Advance tickets on sale at only 400 bob till Monday September 15, 2014. Call/Mpesa-0726524124/0728130134, Airtel:0734524124 or call 0202025811. Email:


A bank robbery has been staged but the getaway car fails to pick up the robbers who then commandeer a taxi. In a twist of fate, the taxi is involved in an accident. And in the ensuing confusion, the money is stolen by unknown people.

Working in cahoots with a crooked cop (played by Janet Kirina), the thugs suspect a taxi driver (played by Nick Ndeda) stole their loot and pursue him only to get sucked into his mysterious life involving two complicated neighbours (played Maina Olwenya and Xavier Nato) and his two very uniquely different wives (played by Nice Githinji and Hellena Waithera).

In the spiraling chaos of deceit, false identity and manic cover-up that ensues, an overzealous police constable (Umi Rajab) fresh from Kiganjo on her first assignment jumps into the frying pan bringing hilarity to new levels.

This is a high voltage roller coaster of fun from start to finish. You cannot miss this fast paced comedy performed by Kenya’s highly experienced superstar cast directed by Veronica Waceke and Mbeki Mwalimu. The show is stage managed by Mwajuma Belle and produced by Abuto Eliud
