The last supper

Empire Group, a collaborative student production drawn from University of Nairobi, Kenyatta University and Technical University of Kenya will this April 9, produce an Easter show at the Visa Oshwal in Parklands.

The play, ‘After the last plate of the last meal of the last supper’ brings the gift of hope this Easter in live performances and an exiting learning experience.

With Easter Sunday just days away, there is plenty to learn about the holiday which is celebrated by millions of Christians around the world.

While various churches have unique ways of commemorating the festival, for many, the celebrations extend beyond Easter Sunday and religious festivals go on until the Pentecost Sunday.

For many, however, Easter Holiday is a time for family, remembrance and gifting, as well as feasting. And for the Christians, who gave things up for Lent, 40 days prior to Easter, are able to indulge once more on the night of Holy Thursday, which this year falls on April 6.
