Gerard Harris and Auckland Fringe present:

A Tension to Detail

"He just rambled on and on and on and I never wanted him to stop" - (Audience testimonial, Montreal).

That's the best description of what it's like to see Gerard Harris live. The acclaimed British storyteller tells tales with an uncommon force, a hyper-fervid mind and "all the wit and timing of an accomplished road comic" (Winnipeg Free Press).

Mixing the deeply personal with the profoundly frivolous, A Tension To Detail looks at the foundational tales we tell ourselves and the narrative choices we make as writers of our own lives. You'll also learn about the functionality of the average bulldog brain and the most humane way to dispatch a lobster into eternity.

Equal parts philosophical, psychological and scatological, this award-winning hit show is "an unforgettable storybook ride of twists and turns told by a master craftsman" (Art Murmurs, Wellington), as well as a fresh challenge to storytellers everywhere.
