Somewhere between an Agatha Christie mystery and a Hitchcock thriller, spine-tingling Revenge is hilarious yet wonderfully spooky with a good, heart thumping scare… starring Kenya’s superstar actors.
Solicitous husband, Ben Kambi (Nick Ndeda), has decided to take his wife, Kathy Kambi (Fridah Muhindi), upcountry to recover having been discharged from a mental hospital. The situation gets even worse when Hilda Kambi (Liz Ngugi), Ben’s beautiful but manipulative sister arrives. Ben had invited her to help patch up the toxic, deeply-entrenched differences between the two women he dearly loves. Hilda is, however, hell-bent to destroy her sister-in-law. Both women set to outdo each other as they compete for his love! Soon Kathy finds herself tormented by strange sounds in the night, and visions of the vengeful ghost. Is she having another breakdown? Is someone trying to drive her mad? When she tries to defend herself from this apparition, events take an unexpected turn in a night of unimaginable suspense.
Amusingly clueless but extremely heartwarming neighbour, Derrick Karani (Xavier Nato) arrives on the scene. Derrick, who continues to show up at suspiciously appropriate moments, is drawn into the web of conflict…or is he the one fanning it?
And then suddenly the quarrels between the two women explode into violent murder. This appears to be an open-and-shut case of vengeful murder. As the story unfolds, it begins to look like a well planned scheme… and someone somewhere is cleverly orchestrating it as more deaths are witnessed…But nothing seems to be what it is and the ending is as shocking as the story itself!
Between an erratic wife, a suspicious husband, an abnormally hilarious neighbour and a sinister sister-in-law, who will be the last man standing? Deceit, false identity and frenzied cover-up ensue as the drama reaches fever pitch. In fact, the play lathers it on so thickly, that one doesn’t really know whether to laugh, or …be afraid. Be very, very afraid.
Directed by Mbeki Mwalimu. The show is stage managed by Mwajuma Belle and produced by Abuto Eliud

Romantic fling with cleaner lands doctor in hot soup!
Trapped is a hilarious audience-pleasing fast-paced comedy. Its physical over-the-top makes our last show Dangerous Affairs seem like a prayer meeting by comparison. The comedy is starring Kenya’s superstars directed by Mbeki Mwalimu. The setting of Trapped is a medical hospital. A doctor (Nick Ndeda) is practicing the lecture he will deliver to an assembly of fellow gynaecologists in less than an hour. The speech’s success is vital to his career.
Interruptions abound. First it’s various other medical staff rehearsing their quartet dance routines for the Sakata Dance Competition (i.e. the cheeky Nigerian doctor played by Maina Olwenya; tough talking matron played by Yvonne Carter; the temptress – sexy and alluring nurse played by Lulu Wilson and the new intern doctor played by Henry Gitau Ngogoyo). Then a long-ago ex (Wangari Gioche), who was once a cleaner at the hospital, brings the news that she gave birth 16 years earlier to the doctor’s daughter (Janet Kirina) and that the daughter is in the hospital in search of Dad! Yes, there is his harsh wife (Rosemary Waweru), and she knows
nothing of the past liaison!
And in the spiraling chaos of deceit, false identity and manic cover-up that ensues, the mission is to avoid the daughter, pacify the ex, keep the chief specialist and hospital deputy director (Derrick Amunga) at bay and fend off various distractions, among them a patient from deep in the village excited by the goings-on (Johnson Chege) and an inquisitive police officer.

1 Man has 3 fiancées whom he has separately promised to marry. But something always seems to go wrong with well laid plans and in his case, the mother of all battles begins when one unfortunate day, his girls appear all at once and he has to keep them from tearing each other to shreds!
