“Play for Change” is not the the classic theatre performance: the public is part of it!
It’s indeed a “Theatre of the Oppressed” performance, a technique of the Participatory Educational Theatre:
IF they wish, the audience can intervene, try solutions and propose new policies about life and challenges on human rights promotion in Kenya, that will be the focus of the proposed plays.
CHANGE THE PLAY, PLAY FOR CHANGE!
(or just sit down and enjoy what happens, you get involved only if you want to!)
FREE ENTRANCE, just book your place: firstname.lastname@example.org
Did you know that this technique has been used even to create new laws in some countries?

WRITTEN By Charles Dyer
Director: Kigondu Martin
Starring: Brian Achola and Kigondu Martin.
A bitterly funny, honest and blunt play about the loneliness, self disgust, underachievement and humanity of two alienated Nairobi barbers with supposed foreign names. A cover of their relationship meshed up in frustrating complexity, frequent ugliness and humor bond by internalized repression and fear. An angle that tells their story without loosing humor or dignity.
