Annie Bakers’s The Aliens is mesmerizing audiences at Stageworks Theater and it is a Theatre Tampa Bay Recommendation! Call for reservations now!
Two lost and disillusioned young men sit behind a Vermont coffee shop and discuss music and Bukowski. When a lonely high-school student arrives on the scene, they decide to teach him everything they know. A play with music about friendship, art, love and death.
“Gentle and extraordinarily beautiful…inordinately delicate…Ms. Baker may just have the subtlest way with exposition of anyone writing for the theater today…there is something distinctly Chekhovian in the way her writing accrues weight and meaning simply through compassionate, truthful observation.” —NY Times
