The Aliens

November 10–12, 2022

Kirk Douglas Theatre


The Aliens by Annie Baker is a seemingly quiet study rooted in alienation, and a powerful observation of a lost generation. We meet two angry young men behind a Vermont coffee shop who talk music and Bukowski until a lonely high school student arrives and they decide to teach him everything they know. A play about friendship, art, love, and death works its way to quiet devastation in Baker’s deeply empathetic knowing language and silence. This is a powerful work performed in realism that lends itself to poetic resonance.
