All is underscored by nagging questions: why have they remained strangers for so long? Why didn’t they get married? Why don’t they… oh, they are! To other people!

Some rich couples, who were invited to the deputy governor’s home for his 10th Wedding Anniversary fall into uncontrollable panic and outright rage after the deputy governor is found with a bullet wound. His wife and domestic staff are not at home. As they try to calm the situation, they decide to come up with stories to hide what they think is going to be a huge scandal from the media and police.

Their cover-up stories become so intertwined that when the police arrive (to handle a completely different issue), they become so scared, they spill the beans.

Comedy: Different Forest Same Monkeys, Until Apr. 14 2013 @ Alliance

Different Forest Same Monkeys
Different Forests, Same Monkeys presented by Heartstrings Kenya

Dates: April 2-14, 2013
Venue: Alliance Française Auditorium

Tickets: Kshs 500 [0721 608 656]

We have found ourselves demanding for great changes: new constitution, elections, no corruption, transparency etc, etc. We have done this so that our lives can change for the best. But the big question is, have we, ourselves as Kenyans changed? We are quick to ask for change, but we have refused to conform to the change. Do remain the same old liars, immoral, dirty, tribalists, corrupt, thieves, the list goes on.

This gut-crushing comedy will hilariously show how we are asking for a good life but there is no effort on our part in making the change in ourselves as Kenyans.

Comedy: Madam Kenyan President, Aug. 7-12 2012 @ Alliance

Madam Kenyan President is back!

After being billed as the craziest show so far, Heartstrings Kenya brings 8 final shows of the comedy Madam Kenyan President in August.
Directed by: Sammy Mwangi and Victor Ber

Date: August 7–12, 2012 [8 shows only]
Venue: Alliance Française de Nairobi
Times: 6.30pm weekdays, 3 & 6.30pm weekdays.
Charges: Kshs 500
Contact: 0721 608 656

Hilariously we will get to know why the best man for the job is a woman. What will Kenya be like under a woman president?

We all have arguably shouted from the rooftops that this country Kenya cannot and shall not be ruled by a woman. That there is no place at the top for a woman to hold. That is a position that is traditionally held by men and so women should forget it and take their rightful position. The second position.

Heartstrings Kenya in a ridiculously hilarious manner and their fashion will show that our president doesn’t have to be a woman. And this is because the women have become small presidents in their many positions that they have taken in our society. The way we all drink, eat, breathe, belch, talk, sleep, wake up, etc etc. is all controlled by woman. The hard fact is that whatever each and every individual Kenyan does, a woman is the one who finally decides. So if the society thinks that we don’t have a woman president, they are wrong because we have them in offices, factories, homes, and schools. They are our mothers, wives, girlfriends, concubines, secretaries, mama mbogas, house helps, etc etc.

A woman is not ruling Kenya, but a woman is surely ruling the world.

We will never look at this country in the same way again because what a man can do, a woman already did it better.
