CAIRNS FESTIVAL: Final week of great events!

The 2010 Cairns Festival is on the home stretch.

The final week offers an extraordinary trio of events.

There's the Festival's first-ever playwright-in-residence: Dean Poynor, who has just arrived from New York to unleash his latest play
Homo apocalyptus.

The Cairns season is a world premiere and is on at The Attic, 89 Grafton Street. Tomorrow, Thursday 3 September, is the last chance to catch his look at post-zombie apocalypse humanity.

Also, fresh from the Darwin Festival, Alana Valentine's touching play
Head Full of Love offers a look at the human relationships that are formed and thrive at the Alice Springs Beanie Festival. You can catch this play at the Cairns Centre of Contemporary Arts on 3rd, 4th and 5th September. Book your tickets.

And now that the rain has gone, be on the lookout for the
Amazing Drumming Monkeys on the Esplanade. Their musical monkey business is infectious, so bring the kids and get your groove on to a simian beat.

You can also catch local musicians on the Nard and at City Place for
Cooked in Cairns. Or how about taking in the creative installations of the Esplanart exhibition. Take your kids to free Esplanart workshops at Cairns Regional Gallery this Saturday.

This big event on this Sunday, a Festival highlight is the
Carnival on Collins.

Get out there and enjoy the Festival.
