Aliens With Extraordinary Skills
By Saviana Stanescu
Directed by Susannah Clark

* Washington, DC Premiere *

At the heart of Saviana Stanescus Aliens With Extraordinary Skills lies the question of the American Dream  how to obtain it, yes, but, perhaps more importantly, to whom does it belong?

Stanescu's funny, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful piece follows Nadia, a young Moldovan woman working as a birthday party clown in New York City.  Her immigration status and questionable papers follow her like a spectre as she struggles to find her footing, pay her rent, and fall in love.  With a loser musician, an exotic dancer, and fellow clown Borat by her side, Nadia weaves together her identity, legitimacy, voice, and balloon animals.

Run time: 90 minutes

PLEASE NOTE: This production contains some strong language, and discussions of sexual assault and alcohol abuse.
