Playwright Annie Baker's Obie-winning drama The Aliens follows a pair of thirtysomething dropouts who hang out by the dumpster behind a coffee shop. As they meditate on music and philosophy, 'shrooms and Bukowski, a teenage employee tells them to hit the road. But instead of leaving, they decide to teach him everything they know. Now presented at The Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts in Maplewood, Annie Baker's off-Broadway hit is a subtly humorous look at friendship in a small town, featuring deft wordplay hailed as "gentle and extraordinarily beautiful" by The New York Times.
