The Aliens

"in a meticulously acted production by Theatre Exile, the silence is downright risky."
Philadelphia Inquirer
"It’s just a super production. Theatre Exile, with its improbable pairing of serious attentiveness to detail and a rakish outsider sensibility, is exactly the company to take this on."

The Aliens
By Annie Baker
2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play

The Aliens brings audiences to a warm summer night behind a coffee shop. Two ex-band members lure a lonely teenager into their world of alienation and rebellion. Through male posturing and moments of shared glories, the troubled lives of the three young men, relegated as “slackers”, are revealed. With a dash of mumblecore humor and live jamming sessions, The Aliens will haunt you with its charm and its sincerity.

Theatre Exile presents the Philadelphia premier of one of America’s fastest rising playwright stars, Annie Baker, staged in the intimate Studio X. Starring Jeb Kreager, Sam Henderson, and Aubie Merrylees.

Directed by Matt Pfeiffer
