World Theatre Festival
Brisbane Powerhouse presents
I Heart Alice Heart I
Wed 20 - Sun 24 Feb 2013
- AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE -
Alice and Alice are coming out. Finally.
Two exceptional, opinionated women were spotted kissing each other in Crumlin Shopping Centre. Now they’re in a show...reluctantly. Defying stereotype, they’re here to share with you something they’ve never dared share before.
A fresh, human and hilarious piece from defiant new company HotForTheatre, I ♥Alice ♥ I explores the monumental journey of a most unlikely couple.
Winner of two Dublin Fringe Festival awards in 2010 including the Fishamble New Writing Award and the Best Female Performer Award, this stirring piece of theatre is an unflinching and acutely personal love story.
Written and Directed by Amy Conroy.
Suitable for people aged 15 years and over. A free Q&A session will follow the Saturday performance.
Duration: 60mins, no interval

'I ♥ Alice ♥ I is an impeccably executed piece of documentary theatre.' - The Irish Times
