the Urge
World Première: October 30, 2015
Dates: October 31 – November 1, 2015
Venue: Alliance Française Auditorium
Tickets: KES 1,000

Hawi Odingo and the Nairobi City Players make a comeback after an absence of almost 20 years. Hawi will direct a highly entertaining, provocative and satirical piece of drama that uses powerful imagery, music and storytelling as well as flashback to openly discuss that most embarrassing and taboo sexual condition afflicting many men, known in medical circles as Erectile Dysfunction (ED). This one act play is written by Dr. JPR Ochieng, a research scientist by training, who has had a distinguished life in theatre excelling as an actor, director and writer. He was at the forefront in pioneering the use of theatre to raise public awareness on health matters with his play ‘Beer’ which openly discussed the HIV/AIDS pandemic back in 1987.

Suitable for a mature audience
