Description

Who are we? What are we doing here? Do you like me? And what are you saying behind my back? Let’s all get together and definitively find out if I’m the best or worst person you know. Those are the only options. Step into my existential crisis and get ready to laugh as I try and answer the eternal question: who am I?. After a sell-out 'barnstorming debut' (Fest) in 2018, New Zealand's Alice Snedden returns to Edinburgh. 'Alice Snedden should be listed as one of New Zealand’s top outputs' ***** (EdFestMag). Directed by Rose Matafeo.

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 89 days ago

Having thought her character was set in stone when she hit 30, Alice Snedden was unshakeable in her self-confidence, the likeably bold Kiwi only belatedly coming to terms with the possibility she may not be her country's future prime minister. ...

Fest (4/5 stars) 98 days ago

Why change a winning formula? Alice Snedden was in this same bunker at the same time last year, with her debut, and sold it out. Halfway into this run she gently mixes things up, by trying out an exciting new way to bring herself on stage – but that’s about...

A televised outburst in her native New Zealand provides the backdrop to Alice Snedden’s stand up show examining moral certainties.
