“Drama in pre-colonial Kenya was not an isolated event. It was functional and part of the life of a people. Drama was an entertainment…it was a moral instruction and was also a strict matter of life and death. This drama was not performed in a building set aside for the purpose. It could be a fireplace anywhere – where there was an empty space.”
