Rough Magic presents How to Keep an Alien Saturday 21st November 2015 8pm

A story about falling in love and proving it to the government.
Sonya Kelly (The Wheelchair on my Face) is back with a tearfully funny, 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.

★★★★★ "Exquisite" The Irish Times
★★★★★ "Inventive and delightfully magnetic theatre" The Herald
★★★★ "This is a very, very funny show ... one to fall in love with" The Guardian
★★★★ "full of lovely surreal detail and laugh-out-loud wit" The Financial Times
