This week we seek to answer the following questions:

  1. Is an affair ever anything but a risqué undertaking with repercussions for those involved in this ‘dance’?
  2. And can the Mvuli House Team really put on a performance worth staging to an audience?

Let’s get started.

Dangerous Affairs

Dangerous AffairsDangerous Affairs is daring story of greed, deceit, love, redemption, back stabbing and extreme gossip from the festival of creative Arts which has been described as a must watch.

The story takes place in the home of an extremely rich factory owner who wants to give a sizable portion of his wealth (Ksh 10,000,000) to the son of his former business associate. The only stipulation is that the young man must be his father’s sole heir.

Unsure of the son’s whereabouts, the factory owner places an advertisement in a number of local newspapers. What unfolds later after the advertisement is posted can only be likened to that famous scene in the Annie movie after billionaire Oliver Warbucks makes an almost similar announcement on a radio show offering a $50,000.

Described also as fast moving and extremely hilarious,this is one play that should definitely feature in your weekend activities.

Directed by Mbeki Mwalimu and Veronica Waceke and produced by Abuto Eliud the show will be showing at Alliance Francaise on today, at 6:00 & 8:00 p.m. Saturday’s production will be staged  at 3:00, 6:00 & 8:00 p.m. while that of Sunday will be staged at 3:00 & 6:00 p.m.

Tickets are retailing at 500/= and are on sale at Alliance Francaise reception, Asanand Music Shop on Moi avenue, 8to8 Mall next to Jazz Bar. For bookings, Call 0202025811 or Mpesa-0726524124/0728130134 or  Airtel: 0734524124.

Live at the Elephant

Makadem brings his rock star performances in the garden of the studio of Eric Wainaina plus the Beathogs will be there to present their famous funk soul shows. The event promises to be filled with great music, and great drinks at great prices. Anticipate an atmosphere rich in texture and stimulating to the senses.

War Horse

War-HorseLet me see, what has my research on this production unveiled…To start with, War Horse is an adaptation of British author Michael Morpurgo’s 1982 children’s novel of the same name set before and during World War I

I also found out that you do not want to miss your chance to see this landmark theatrical event. War Horse was filmed live at the National Theatre in London .Hosted by CrossCulture XC the Nairobi premiere of War Horse is on April 27th at the National Museum of Kenya, Louis Leakey Auditorium, Museum Hill. Screening starts at 3:00 p.m. Entry is Kshs. 2500. For more information, call +254 708 757 606

Last but definitely not least, I also learned just how strong the power of love is (I know it sounds cliché, but its hard not to notice it as you read the synopsis). Tell me if it comes out to you when as you watch it.

After the screening, you can drop in at the Mvuli Suites and grab yourself a bite and something to drink while you are at it.

Pssst…If you are around Nairobi West tomorrow…you might want to drop in at the Mvuli House around 9:00 a.m until noon and get to see the Mvuli Staff who serve you when you visit the hotel don their acting and dancing hats…you may also be lucky to catch yours truly in action too (LOL). Should you miss out on this you can always keep up with us on Facebook or on Twitter.

I know we didn’t answer the questions posed in the beginning of this post, then again why take the thrill of discovery from you?

Have a lovely weekend and remember to dress like an onion in this chilly weather.
