Dramatists Play Service describes The Aliens so darn well that we’re simply forced to run their synopsis here:
“Two angry young men sit behind a Vermont coffee shop and discuss music and Bukowski. When a lonely high-school student arrives on the scene, they decide to teach him everything they know. A play with music.”

“Annie Baker is so good at relinquishing control. Or, more aptly, [she] is so good at giving us this illusion. She writes like a ventriloquist, channeling the funny, melodic tics of modern vernacular into dialogue that feels unprocessed, meandering and utterly unplanned. There’s so little sense of determinism in her work that we may feel as though we’re going nowhere until we’re staring formidable themes in the face.”
– THE GLOBE AND MAIL

“Ms. Baker’s humor is warm and offbeat, arising from an affection for and an understanding of her characters’ idiosyncrasies.”
– NEW YORK TIMES
