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.

Apples from the Desert is an award winning play written by Savyon Liebrecht. It’s set in Israel and it’s a romantic comedy dealing with freedom; religious freedom, career choice, romance and all sorts of freedom that a young lady with a strict dad and suppressed mother craves.

Phoenix Players Present: Steel Magnolias directed by Nyambura M Waruingi

Opening Date: September 20, 2013
Venue: Phoenix Players
Runs Until: October 5, 2013.
Tickets: Ksh. 500.

First produced in New York in 1987, it successfully opened at London’s Lyric Theatre in 1987. Hilarious and touching, this play for six women is set in a beauty parlour somewhere in Louisiana. Through four scene spanning three years, Clairee , Ouiser, her eager but inexperienced assistant, engaged in small town gossip, running the gamut of the birth/marriage/death cycle.
The play moves towards tragedy when Shelby – a diabetic dies following a kidney-transplant operation, and the deep strength and purposefulness, underlying the antic banter of its character is ultimately revealed.
