iteoas

“In the eyes of a stranger” runs until 9th feb 2013. Tickets only Ksh. 500. Students Ksh. 200.

Sold Out: 6pm show on 9th Feb

SYNOPSIS

The enigmatic center of the play is Pinon, a hermit who 18 years ago locked himself away in his seaside house after possibly cutting his wife into small pieces and permanently scarring the face of Gratia, a local prostitute. Now he sits at the edge of the sea cliff, observing the would-be suicides who come to this lonely spot.
They include Sebastian, a nervous young man with a heart condition who has just been jilted, and Daniel, who is suffering from questions over his sexuality and abandonment by his parents when he was a child. The third visitor is Vera, a runaway bride who comes to see Pinon out of curiosity after hearing his story from a hotel porter.
Bauer explores variations on his title theme. Sebastian asks Pinon to move into the light so he can see his eyes. Vera wonders to an unseen companion how she must appear in their eyes. The porter begs Vera to let him watch her change her clothes. Along the way Bauer weaves the characters’ lives together, in “La Ronde” fashion, shaping ever-changing onstage and offstage duets. In this complex intertwining, Pinon lives in a house he won from the porter in a card game; the porter relates Pinon’s history to Vera; Sebastian wants Vera; Daniel wants Sebastian; Pinon wants to be Daniel’s substitute father figure.

Winnie is nearly nine. Her mum, Laverne, is second- generation Afro – Caribbean and heavily pregnant but continues with her cleaning job since her husband left while she dreams of moving the family back to Martinique. Tuesdays are special:
Laverne insists that Winnie speaks only French ( in preparations for Martinique) and today is Tuesday – not her usual day to clean at the north London house of Kevin Tate, an affluent, bad tempered, philandering, minor television personality.
Not well enough to go to school,Winnie accompanies her mum and settles down to her homework; an essay entitled “MY WONDERFUL DAY”.

Throughout the course of the next two hours, the shy, astute and ever watchful Winnie will amass plenty of material for her essay as a variety of adults parade before her: Kevin’s baby-talking and patronizing mistress, his vengeful wife, and the hangover family friend who pours out his heart believing that Winnie does not speak English. But as events reach a frenzied climax, Winnie’s essay will speak volumes.

SYNOPSIS
Last performed on the Phoenix Stage in 1988, PIRATES is one of the better-known works from the indomitable pair of Gilbert and Sullivan.
It tells the story of a band of pirates [in this case Nairobi ones!] on their usual ‘prowl of pillage’. One of their own- Frederick- has come to the end of his ‘contract’ as a Pirate- having mistakenly been apprenticed to them by his Nanny- Ruth- who, being from a region where ‘L’ and ‘R’ are one and the same- took ‘PILOT’ to mean ‘PIRATE’ and thus sealed Fredrick’s fate as a young lad.
The Pirates want Fred to take Ruth with him…his only knowledge of a woman is indeed Ruth- who tells him she’s as good as it gets. Only for them to stumble onto a bevy of maidens frolicking at the shores of the Dam.
They are daughters to a widowed retired Major General. On realizing the Pirates are bent on making brides of his daughters, he spins a woeful tale of him being an orphan- a story which melts the hardened hearts of the rogue pirates, and they let him go.
Fred, meanwhile, is informed of a small hitch to his being released from the pirates, and has to return to their ranks. He spills the beans regarding the General’s story and they return to revenge for being duped. A bunch of lazy policemen is on their trail…

This is a family show- light story, melodious music, great talent!

SYNOPSIS
After the death of her second husband, Bernarda Alba, a dominating woman, imposes a period of mourning on her household to last all of eight years! This has, apparently, been tradition in her family. Bernarda exerts an almost fanatically protective will over her daughters. She is preoccupied with ideas of honour and custom, in particular relating to the role of women in society, and is too proud to see the truth about her own five daughters aged between 21 and 40, whom she has shielded and controlled to an excessive degree and prohibited from any form of contact or relationship with all things male! The mourning period further isolates the daughters from the world around them, and tension mounts within the household.
Passion, anger, sibling rivalry and extreme jealousy haunts the characters in The House of Bernarda Alba…

Theatre: Changing Generation (A Musical), Nov. 26 2010-Jan. 8 2011 @ The Professional Centre

Phoenix Players Proudly presents CHANGING GENERATIONS directed by George Mungai. This Musical Production was first presented in 1992, and was written by James Falkland with music by Joy Mboya and Suzanne Gachukia. It Premiers this Friday 26th November 2010.

This is a story of a group of young Kenyans who have just graduated and are in the throes of celebrating this achievement but this is shadowed by a cloud of uncertainty of the future- corruption, lethargy, politics; getting jobs…Kim (Waithaka Gatumia) and Josh (Bryan Alufwani) are buddies and are in serious relationships with Purity (Jane Gathoni) and Bella (Darshani Haria). The hurdles begin to unfold when Kim’s Mother is opposed to this relationship and regards Purity as a ‘gold digger’ of obscure breeding. On the other hand, Josh’s Father cannot imagine his son getting hitched to a girl of different color. The young couples have their own self inflicted challenges. The issues in 1992, interestingly, are still the same today!! The cast is fresh and highly talented, backed up with an amazing band

The show shall be on Wed, Thurs and Friday’s @ 7p.m, Sat @ 6p.m, Sun 12th & 19th @ 4p.m & Sat 8th @ 3p.m & 6p.m.

New Kenyan Play: When It Rains, Sep 17-Oct 2 2010 @ Professional Centre/Phoenix Players

Set in a pub on the outskirts of Nairobi, heading towards midnight with a raging storm, erratic electricity, and matatus on strike…talk of Murphy’s Law: everything that could go wrong is going wrong

The tempo is brisk, the tension tight as a violin string. The ending is completely unpredictable, and provides two parallel approaches…does the end justify the means- or are the means themselves qualified?
