The Theatre Company of Kenya, in collaboration with Story Moja, has created a live performance of the book ‘The Attack of the Shidas-AKAS Save Planet Earth’ by Muthoni Muchemi.Attack Of The Shidas is about children from different communities in Kenya who realize that the only way to save their community, that is being threatened by a disastrous water shortage, is by overcoming their differences.

The Kenyan Human Rights Commission has enabled this live performance to tour during the month of June to twelve schools throughout Kenya followed by discussions with pupils and teachers. Almost 6,000 pupils have seen the show so far. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the audiences were fully engaged with the performances. Therefor the Kenyan Human Rights Commission has decided to extend the tour to another 12 schools in the month of July.

As The Theatre Company feels that also the general public should also be able to see this great mixture of music, dance and theatre, 2 public performances are being organised on the 21st of July at the Michael Joseph Centre, Safaricom House, Nairobi. As Kenyans from all ages will recognise the theme of the play, it is also a real family performance. Language used is a mixture of English and Swahili.

The Theatre Company brings you Kenyan talent, professionally trained at facilities around the country in performances created by Kenyan writers. Come and be inspired by this lively play which is more than suitable for children of all ages.

When and where? 21st of July at 2 pm and 4 pm at the Michael Joseph Centre, Safaricom House, Waiyaki Way, Nairobi.

Tickets: 400 Ksh in advance. At the gate the tickets all cost 500 Ksh. Tickets can be booked via MPesa on 0722554372, or bought at Anselm’s Kitengela Hot Glass at the Junction.
