As with music, stories too command attention; but too often, we let ourselves down with the lack of it. Let us think for a minute, shall we? When was the last time you had a pining to dig into a book or article about Kenyan history? While chances are that it has been quite some time now, I have a better answer; some time soon!
August 2019 marked what would have been Thomas Joseph Odhiambo Mboya’s 89th birthday. To celebrate this anniversary, we will be benefiting from a stage production by Too Early for Birds; a powerful production that has a great deal to say about their art of storytelling. Perhaps the greatest they can say is that it permits us to learn about a history misrepresented or otherwise dismissed.
So far, the success of Too Early for Birds has been a matter of daring and dedication much more than money and fame. So, why not show up in support and appreciation of all that and more? For details about this year’s show, refer to poster below.
