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.

Dates: March 20-21, 2018
Venue: Kenya National Theatre
Tickets: KES 5,000/-

The Vagina Monologues
An Obie Award-winning whirlwind tour of a forbidden zone, The Vagina Monologues introduces a wildly divergent gathering of female voices, including a six-year-old girl, a septuagenarian New Yorker, a vagina workshop participant, a woman who witnesses the birth of her granddaughter, a Bosnian survivor of rape, and a feminist happy to have found a man who “liked to look at it.”

Twenty years ago, Eve Ensler’s play The Vagina Monologues gave birth to V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and gender non-conforming).
