Such a stark reminder of...youthful hope - The Telegraph
The Aliens runs
May 4 through June 4
Fridays & Saturdays 8:00
Behind a Vermont coffee shop, two friends straddling youth and adulthood spend their days pondering life, music, and Bukowski. When a lonely high-school student arrives on the scene, they take him under their wing and teach him everything they know. A play with music about connection, creation, and what it takes to grow up.
NOTE: After the 1st week of the run, Buchanan and Folsom will alternate roles. Thurs/Sat performances will feature the cast above, while Fri/Sun performances will feature Folsom as KJ and Buchanan as Jasper.
