Rewind Fast Forward Event: Respect moderated by Dr. Njoki Ngumi, Mar. 15 2014 @ the Nest


What makes us hold some people in high regard – and what makes us deny others the same? How do we act towards those we honour – and what makes us decide whether to look up to people or not? Are all people worthy of respect?

The Nest’s second Rewind Fast Forward event explores the instinct, contention and actions behind how we decide to treat people, focusing on where they come from and what they do.

Join the forum theater moderator Dr. Njoki Ngumi and the cast of Maggie Karanja, Millicent Ogutu, Olwenya Maina and Sam Psenjen on Saturday 15th from 2pm – 5pm and have your say!

Theater & Performances: Three Fold Cord, Jul. 6-21 2012 @ Phoenix Players

Phoenix Players Present 3 Fold Cord.
Directed by Millicent Ogutu

Dates: Runs until 21st July 2012.

Tickets: Ksh. 650. Student nights Every Thursday. Buy 1 ticket @ Ksh. 400 and get 1 Free.

Marcus Pennington appears to have it all: a beautiful actress wife, Victoria, two loving daughters and a successful career as a respected senior lawyer. But behind the façade he is leading a triple life, romancing two other women: Dexie, a prostitute, and Millicent, the widow of his best friend, now his PA. In a series of highly engaging monologues, Victoria Dexie and Millicent tell Marcus’ story from three very different perspectives.

Preoccupied and detached, Victoria is seemingly oblivious to his indiscretions – and guilty of her own, but regards him with fond indulgence. Shy, Self deprecating Millicent can’t help but be taken in by the promise of romance and passion that was lacking in her marriage. Dexie hopes that Marcus will provide a route out of poverty – all the more necessary after she gives birth to his illegitimate son.

A government official is deployed to a small town where everyone knows everything about everybody! He has, in tow, a wife and his mother-in-law. Peculiarly he houses both women separately and nobody gets to see his wife who is permanently ensconced in a fifth floor apartment. The tongues begin to wag as Pirandello plays on the fickleness of the human being when faced with a situation they do not understand!
