Drie mannen bouwen een podium voor muzikante Juno. Bren is jong en gelooft in Aliens, Peters weet van alles wat en Jim zorgt ervoor dat het werk wordt gedaan. Tijdens het werk wordt er gepraat en gelachen, maar de spanning stijgt en de vriendschap wordt getest, grappige verhalen komen voorbij en de diepste geheimen komen bloot te liggen. Tegen de tijd dat Juno arriveert voor haar optreden weten de mannen meer van elkaar dan ooit te voren.

Una McKevitt laat fictie en werkelijkheid samensmelten in alledaagse karakters die met hun verhalen getuigen van kameraadschap en moed.

Winnaar van The Stewart Parker Award 2016



ENGLISH VERSION
3 men build a stage for the musician Juno.  Bren is young and believes in aliens. Peter knows something about everything. Jim makes sure the work gets done.  As they work and talk and laugh, tempers flare and friendships are tested, funny stories are told and dark secrets exposed. By the time Juno arrives for her performance, the men know more about each other than they ever did before.

 “There were 4 billion stars discovered last year. Do the math. It is next to impossible that we are alone.”

Irish Times
“Alien Documentary is an enjoyable meditation on masculinity, anchored by three extremely likeable performances; the aliens are the men before us, revealing the hidden truths of their species.”

DRAFF Magazine
"In Alien Documentary the men are doing something highly unfamiliar – in an air of acceptance and openness they share their darkest secrets, revealing the nature of both abuser and abused with a considered script and performances. It is refreshing to be given access to a space in which men are allowed to speak freely and with sensitivity about such delicate matters.."
