How to Keep An Alien: Australia To Ireland

From Standing Room Only, 12:35 pm on 26 March 2017

We like Irish performers here in New Zealand.

Partly it's because they're terrific - a line of genius from Oscar Wilde, Dave Allen, Father Ted and Dylan Moran.

Case in point: writer-actor-comedienne Sonya Kelly, whose show How to Keep An Alien is part of the Wanaka Festival of Colour, Kerikeri's UPSURGE Festival, and is about to wrap up at the Auckland Arts Festival.

The show is an exploration of the difficult task of proving your love to a government bureaucracy.
