The Aliens

September 12-23, 2018

By Annie Baker

Offbeat Drama

A Pulitzer Prize-winning play by one of America’s best contemporary female playwrights

Jasper and KJ are two misfit souls who have made the out-back patio of a coffee shop their private sanctuary and refuge from the real world. Here they can indulge in their dreams and delusions of being a brilliant writer and a divine healer. Seventeen-year-old Evan is eking out his summer working at the café and is irresistibly drawn to their world of magic mushrooms, philosophical musings and rock bands that never-were. A compassionate and humorous examination of two “Xennials” lost between the X and Millennial generations.

“The Aliens … are the leftover kids from American Idiot and Rent, ten years on — the ones who survived their 20s and are entering their 30s with no artistic talent, no practical skills, and a bad drug habit.” - Variety
