with Sara Hennessy* and Amy Katrina Bryan

Stage Manager: Amy Katrina Bryan, Set and Light Design: Trevor Sargent, Sound Design: Phillip Johnson, Costume Design: Summer Olsson, Props Design: Chanell Magee

Irish Sonya and Australian Kate meet and fall in love, while working on a Russian play with English accents in an Irish castle. Together, they embark on a global odyssey to prove that they have a right to live together in Ireland. How to Keep an Alien is a tender and hilarious story attesting to the perils and obstacles of emigration, and the transformation that Irish society has undergone in recent times. This is a story about falling in love and proving it to the government.
