Rough Magic in association with Soho Theatre London presents ‘How to Keep an Alien’:
A story about falling in love and proving it to the government.
Written and performed by Sonya Kelly , with Justin Murphy. Directed by Gina Moxley
The Brilliant Sonya Kelly is back with a tearfully funny, hilariously tender memoir about securing an Irish visa for her Australian partner Kate. They met. They fell in love. Now all they have to do is prove it to the government. Join her madcap odyssey from the stony townlands of Offaly to the leafy depths of the Queensland bush. It’s a tricky business coming from opposite ends of the earth. It takes an Olympian will and the heart of whale, but above all else, paperwork. It takes a hell of a lot of paperwork.
