A child lies dead. An elephant Matriarch stands accused of his murder… Is the Matriarch guilty or is she innocent? You, the audience Jury, must decide…

Elephants are smart animals with great memory so they’ve got tactics on how best to raid crop fields and remember which areas are worth taking a risk to visit. These magnificent giants can eat up to 450KG of food per day!  This causes conflict between humans and elephants and both have lost their lives as a result of conflict for resources.

The Elephant Queen Outreach & Education program and Youth Theatre Kenya are proud to present an Interactive Theatre Production exploring the Human-Wildlife Conflict.

On Trial, is the 3rd of 3-educational plays within the Elephant Queen Outreach & Education Program. Each play aimed at Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary levels of school respectively.

On Trial will lay all the facts for you. You’ll  get to hear key witness statements and testimonies, expert accounts, and critical analysis from both counsels. Then the Jury is giving time to go away and come back with a verdict.

It promises to be an exciting piece of new theatre tackling a relevant and crucial issue.

Watch this exciting play at Ukumbi Mdogo National Theatre from 7th to 9th December & Solo Grano Restaurant 11th December.
