Theatre lovers flocked the Professional Centre in Nairobi to watch the premiere of the play Meetings written by Kiss TV's John Sibi-Okumu last Friday evening. Sibi-Okumu's other plays include Role Play, Like Ripples on a Pond, In Search of the Drum Major and Minister Karibu.
Meetings, directed by Nick Njache, brings back memories of the past when political dictatorship was at its zenith and anyone who tried to speak up against it was thrown into Nyayo House cells. Some of the issues dealt with in the play include political intrigues and games the political elite play in order to get the coveted seats. With just a few days to go before the March 4 elections, Meetings could not have come at a better time.
Some of those who attended are Cut Off My Tongue Actress Sitawa Namwalie, The Arts Canvas MD Mumbi Kaigwa and The Ragged Priest hero Collin Simpson.
The play runs until March 2.
