ERIC GICHIRA Is Kenyan theatre dead? I’d like to take a hard and unsentimental look at this
question. In a sense, there’s little or nothing in our theatres that can be termed
‘Kenyan theatre’. Thus, where this phrase is used, I have to mean theatre with
a Kenyan cast, or written by a Kenyan. For purposes of identity, we Kenyans
rush to identify anything put on our stage as ‘Kenyan theatre’. God forbid.
