Written and produced by Tash Mitambo, the comedy follows the lives of two young family men who are made to reassess their roles when what they do at work is called into question by their wives.

Find Common Ground @ NCAI, Rosslyn Riviera
‘Common Ground’ is an exhibition that brings together artworks by four artists, comprised of drawing, painting and sculpture, highlighting creations that were made within the last decade. On display are artworks that depict social groups, specifically students, uniformed officers, protesters, and family. In these works, each of the artists considers the behaviour of these groups as a unit and their relationships with the physical and social spaces they inhabit. Among them are a large-scale drawing by Peterson Kamwathi, a recently completed group of sculptures by Morris Foit, alongside a significant painting by Elias Mung’ora and a selection of artworks from an ongoing series by Paul Njihia.
Dates: Ongoing till September 23, 2023
Venue: Nairobi Contemporary Art Institute NCAI, Rosslyn Riviera, Nairobi
