heartstrings

Venue: Alliance Française Auditorium
Time: 6.30 pm Weekdays and 3 & 6.30 pm on week-ends
Tickets: KES 599

About
“Grass Is Greener” a gut-dismantling comedy from the supreme kings of comedy Heartstrings Entertainment.

This wildly hilarious comedy will crazily show the fruits of craving for what is not necessarily yours. That greed is one of the most hard-hitting vice that one can ever practice.

A man has been craving for the neighbour’s wife, their house and the life they lead. What he doesn’t know is that the reason that the grass is greener on the other side is because the grass is planted on sewage.
