How to Keep an Alien at the Linenhall

Sonya Kelly brings her hilarious and tender new show How to Keep an Alien to the Linenhall Arts centre in Castlebar on Monday November 2 at 8pm. Presented by Rough Magic How to Keep an Alien is a story about falling in love and proving it to the government. Sonya Kelly, who brought the wonderful The Wheelchair on my Face, to the Linenhall is back with a tearfully funny, tender, memoir about securing an Irish visa for her Australian partner.

They met. They fell in love. Now all they have to do is prove it to the Government. Join Sonya’s 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. The play is written and performed by Sonya Kelly with support from Justin Murphy, and directed by Gina Moxley. 

Sonya Kelly performs How to Keep an Alien at the Linenhall Arts Centre on Monday November 2 at 8pm. Booking is advised. To book call (094 ) 9023733 or book online at
