Theatre & Performances: Staircase by Charles Dyer, Nov. 13-29 2015 @ Phoenix Players

Dates: November 13-29, 2015
Venue: Phoenix Players Theatre
Time Slots: Wed:7pm, Thur:7pm, Fri 7:30pm and Sat:6pm

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.

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
