Nanzikambe Arts on Wednesday started showing their year-end plays marking the shutdown of the year at Nanzikambe Arts Café in Naperi, Blantyre.
The group performed A Matter of State to an audience the group’s programme manager Thokozani Kapiri described as flattering as there were rains prior to the show.
The play, constituting a cast of eight, is about the dangers that technology can bring to one’s life if caution is not exercised. It brings forth issues that affect our lives such as the devaluation of the kwacha.
In an interview, Kapiri said the play was nothing serious, they just decided to come with something fans can relate to and they do not expect any person whose name was mentioned in the play, as well as those who think the play is about them, to take offence.
“We are coming from a background of political plays and in this play, we are just trying to address social issues that the audience can relate to,” said Kapiri.
The group will stage Tale of a Tiger on Friday, Romeo and Juliet on Saturday and close the festive season with And Crocodiles are Hungry at Night just two days before entry into 2013.
