Upstart Productions marks its return to the Dallas-Fort Worth theater scene with the Obie-winning The Aliens.
In the play, the dingy back alley of a sleepy Vermont coffeehouse is home to trash bins, weathered patio furniture and two affable slackers, KJ and Jasper. The two fill their days with Bukowski references, low-key jam sessions, aspirations to launch their band dubbed The Aliens, and ’shroom-spiked tea. When smart but awkward teenager Evan, a new coffeehouse employee, attempts to evict them from their makeshift perch, KJ and Jasper recruit him as their summer protégé.
