Award-winning podcast The Allusionist is Live in Wellington for the first time. Hilarious and fascinating in equal measure, Helen Zaltzman (with musical support from Martin Austwick) grapples at language to figure out how and why we humans use it the way we do. Pirate & Queen are delighted to present The Allusionist live in Wellington, with thanks to National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa.

Join us for a for an adventure in language.
