Play: Matchstick Men – A Martin Kigondu Play, Nov. 10 2018 @ the Kenya National Theatre


Prevail Arts Company presents ‘Matchstick Men.’ – A Martin Kigondu play.

Date: November 10, 2018
Venue: the Kenya National Theatre
Time: 4 pm
Tickets: KES 1,000/-

SYNOPSIS: Memories shape lives but what happens when one cannot remember? What if our minds choose to block out memories that cause us pain? Set about a year after the country’s post election violence – the play peeps into the journey of Seth and Fathili as they share a fervent session trying to unwrap their entangled memories.

This is in the hope of not only finding a way forward but also retouching fragments of family and perhaps even themselves. What unfolds is an intense drama that questions what it means to be a man, a parent and even a nation; a hard hitting drama about healing and pain and the distance between the two.

Written and Directed by Kigondu Martin – the Prevail Arts Company production stars Immanuel Mulili and Bilal Mwaura.
