NYMF and MAXINE LYLE are pleased to announce the US premiere of MO FAYA, written by ERIC WAINAINA and directed by JOHN SIBI-OKUMU.
DJ Lwanda's voice rings out daily on local radio, leading and inspiring the Nairobi community of Kwa Maji. But Anna Mali, an avaricious real estate diva, craves the land beneath their slum. She seduces the fiery young DJ away with a job at a top nationwide station, and organizes a violent campaign to terrorize the people of Kwa Maji. When the government and media turn a blind eye to the decapitated bodies in the streets, DJ Lwanda must return home to expose the truth. But at what cost? Show will be performed in English with Swahili.
The production features a full cast and band from Kenya.
