The title, Below the Belt begs the question: who is hitting and who is getting hit?

In Heartstrings Kenya’s latest production of the comedy Below the Belt, everyone seems to be hitting or getting hit.

The story is about present-day relationships in Nairobi and young peoples’ view of them.

Set in a club, it starts with two young single women (Adeline Nimo as Monica and Gindie Kahuha as Sandra) gossiping and fussing about boys, other girls and the poor quality of service in the club.
