“…a gentle and extraordinarily beautiful new play”. That’s what the New York Times had to say about the latest from 31 year old playwright Annie Baker. It’s called The Aliens, and it takes place in a back alley behind a small town New England coffee shop. In the play two 30-something slackers discuss music, philosophy and Bukowski. While riding the high of shroom laced tea and acoustic guitar riffs they write novels and music that the world will never see.
