THE ALIENS by Annie Baker
Ironweed Productions launches its 2020 Season and celebrates its 15th Birthday with a production of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker's hilarious and gently moving play, "The Aliens". This lovely three-character drama explores alienation, friendship and the discovery of ones hidden gifts among three lost souls on a desolate backyard outside a Vermont coffee shop. Annie Baker, one of the freshest and most unique voices in American Theatre today, has crafted a story that is by turns volatile and tender, wickedly funny and hauntingly nuanced, and one in which quietest moments can revel the most profound truths. In her quietly devastating play there is something distinctly Chekhovian in the way her writing accrues weight and meaning simply through compassionate, truthful observation (The New York Times).
The production is directed by Lynn Goodwin, co-Artistic Director of Just Say It Theater and director of their recent critically-acclaimed productions of "Constellations" and "The Big Heartless". And the production features: Matt Sanford, Mac in "The Big Heartless" and most recently appearing with Ironweed in "Buried Child" and "Good People"; Nikoa Salas, who recently played Pops in Teatro Paraguas critically-acclaimed production of "Elliot: a Soldiers Fugue"; and Mickey Dolan, who recently appeared in the New Mexico Actors Lab lauded production of "4,000" Miles by Amy Herzog.
Ironweed returns to the Second Space at Teatro Paraguas, home of their successful run of "Water by the Spoonful" by Quiara Alegría Hudes, which was part of "The Elliot Trilogy", a collaboration with Teatro Paraguas and the Santa Fe Playhouse.
