Play: It’s now or never, Mar 4-6 2011 @ Alliance Francaise

An Original Comedy by Festival of Creative Arts

@ Alliance Francaise 4th-6th March 2011
Friday 4th @ 6:30 & 8pm; Sat 5th and Sun 6th @ 3, 6 & 8pm
Tickets at 500/= adults (and Advance at 400/= for tickets purchased before 1st March). Ticket hotlines are 020-2025811, 0726-524124 (mpesa), 0734-524124, 0733-993654 (zap). Tickets available at HEN-TAGE Music Plaza (First floor 8to8 Shopping Mall) on Moi Avenue, Alliance Francaise next to View Park Towers. Email:

Kate (Mbeki Mwalimu) is the tough and domineering wife of Tim Tembo (Juma William) who is constantly humiliated and ridiculed by Kate’s family. Tim is a frustrated man but cannot leave because Kate and her family sustain him financially. Indeed, Kate has recently convinced her dad to give Tim a job at his law firm and club membership at her dad’s prestigious Country Club. Kate thus keeps a close watch on his every movement, from his workplace where she gets details of his comings and goings to the Club where he is required to socialise with club members who are known to her.

The couple has been married for more than 3 years now but do not have children yet, a matter that is causing Kate’s nosy mother, Maria (Shiko Mburu), sleepless nights.

Kate continuously harasses Susan (Veronica Waceke), their housegirl, who must bear the brunt of Kate’s wrath. Tim is also not spared and is a target of her frequent outbursts. In spite of her tough persona, Kate ends up entangled in an illicit relationship with Willie (Derrick Amunga), an old flame of hers. For solace, Tim resorts to a steamy love affair with Susan. It is his way of way of getting back at Kate. Kate’s alcoholic friend Julie (Nice Githinji) comes into the picture to complicate matters in a marriage already on the verge of collapse.

It’s Now or Never! is a refreshing comedy written in 2011 by Festival of Creative Arts. The comedy is very relevant to our society today portraying a family bedevilled by unavoidable problems. Life issues such as relationships and infidelity are mirrored on stage in a subtle and humorous rendition.  The play is an insight into societal problems of profound cultural and socioeconomic ramifications.

I want your Wife! is set in a middle-class household occupied by seemingly happy well-to-do couple Sheila and Andrew. Both have been
naughty, however. Both blissfully unaware of their alcohol-clouded indiscretions of the previous week. Andrew gets sloshed at his office
do and tries it on with a secretary, while Sheila gets friendly with a younger man after getting pickled at a party. This play is a mishmash
of utter confusion set on a Sunday afternoon where one would expect a stress free day. Two unexpected guests arrive to break the ‘happy’
couple’s reverie, throwing their entire relationship into question.
What follows is utter confusion. A series of humorous misunderstandings and mistaken identities follows as the couples try
to hide their possible infidelities through a string of lies.
