WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Borders aren't just political - they're personal. How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Gardaí is a new play that sheds light on one woman's attempt to interrogate the bureaucratic horror that is Immigration Policy. This exciting show examines the desire to find something human and worthwhile in a deeply dehumanizing process.
This show is a hilarious, poignant, and truthful retelling of a deeply personal, grueling, and upsetting merry-go-round of miscommunication and administrative paperwork. It deals with the pressure on relationships, the questioning of one's identity and the struggle between wanting to stand up for yourself and not wanting to potentially upset your immigrant status.
In this play, Lili explores immigration from Ireland to her native New Mexico and why it's an issue everyone is so damned worried about.
