Paper Lantern Theatre Company presents The Aliens

January 14, 2013

“…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 Bukaowski. While riding the high of shroom laced tea and acoustic guitar riffs they write novels and music that the world will never see. The play is also a coming of age story about their painfully awkward teenager protégé Evan and their surprising friendship ultimately leaves the trio forever changed.

Paper Lantern Theatre Company launches its fifth season with this Obie Award-winning play. It opens Thursday night, January 17 in the intimate UpStage Cabaret at Triad Stage in Greensboro and tickets are 20-bucks. Paper Lantern actor Sterling Hurst plays the role of K.J., Josh Foldy is fellow slacker Jasper and Owen Hickle-Edwards plays the 17-year old Evan. Sterling and Owen dropped by along with Paper Lantern Director Jonathan Brady.
