Festival of Creative Art is back with ‘Fatal Attraction’, a hilarious and exciting thriller designed to provide an evening of hysterical comedy that will be staged at the Kenya National Theatre from dates 20th -22nd of September 2013.
To get a feel of what awaits you at the Kenya National Theatre picture this: Max Kebaya, is a seemingly mild-mannered gentleman who, through the course of the play, will attempt several murders, drug potential witnesses, and lie to everyone he comes in contact with. Yet while Max may be a monster, it’s pretty apparent that Godfrey Odhiambo himself is just about the best friend a moderately funny comedic thriller could ask for. Godfrey has a charming, self-effacing quality and exudes a natural innocence that takes a lot of the sting out of his character’s hatefulness; he is huggable adulterer-killer!
Now, I do not want to give much of the plot away so that I can leave room for a little mystery to fill up your weekend.
The plays will be staged at 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. on Friday and at 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets will be retailing at Kshs. 500
