3. · When you looked in the mirror first thing this morning,
what was the first thing you thought?
I got to make my play DEATH AND THE ESTATE successful
4. · Why did you pick this show? Can you tell us a little bit
It’s a play I wrote about 9 years ago. It tells the story of greed and dishonesty through the eyes of different people from different social and economic classes. The story is about a family that fights for inheritance but they realise there is something more valuable, a portion that makes one immortal. Alliances are soon formed among people with vested interest to get this portion.
5. · Who do you think will like this show? Anything else you
would like to add?
I think this plays suits everyone because anyone can relate to it regardless of their social or economic background. I would like everyone to come see it, it’s really entertaining. It runs at the Kenya National Theatre from 9th 10th and 11th December. Tickets go for 500/= shilling. For any enquiries call Maurice 0724347509
6. · What’s next for you or the theatre?
