KJ and Jasper are professional slackers and best friends. They spend their days outside the back of a small coffee shop in Vermont, talking music and Bukowski. 17 year old Evan is just getting ready for life, eking out his Summer working at the café. KJ and Jasper draw him into their world of magic mushrooms, philosophical musings and great-bands-that never-were.

One of the freshest voices to come out of America in recent years, Annie Baker’s gentle, engaging and deeply funny play introduces two new cult heroes in the shape of KJ and Jasper, and puts modern day America under the microscope to ask what happened to the generation who never grew up.

The Aliens opened in New York at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in April 2010. It won the 2010 Obie Award for Best Play, joint with Annie Baker’s Circle Mirror Transformation. Both plays were also given a Special Citation by the New York Drama Critics Circle

Peter Gill is considered to be one of the most influential directors of the last 40 years. He directed groundbreaking productions by D.H. Lawrence and Joe Orton at the Royal Court during the 60’s and founded the Riverside Studios, Hammersmith and the National Theatre Studio in the 70’s and 80’s

Meet the Cast: Jellyfish by Ben Weatherill

Meet the cast of Jellyfish. It’s the story of a first kiss, chips by the beach and coming of age with Down’s Syndrome in a seaside town. “I know what people say. How they treat us. But that’s their problem. No one else should give a fuck.” Kelly likes dirty jokes and finding creatures washed up…
