Women's Project launched its 2008-2009 season in September with Aliens with Extraordinary Skills, "a world premiere dark comedy about emigres who need both love and a green card by a celebrated Romanian playwright, poet, and journalist Saviana Stanescu. A clown from the unhappiest country in the world, Moldova, pins her hopes on a US work visa by creating balloon animals. Chased by Homeland Security, a deportation letter deflates her enthusiasm, and a pair of spike heels might be all it takes to burst her American Dream."
This production, opened on Monday, September 22, is directed by award-winning theater artist and Bosnian emigre Tea Alagic. The cast includes Shirine Babb, Seth Fisher, Gian-Murray Gianino, Kevin Isola, Natalia Payne, and Jessica Pimentel. The creative team includes Tea Alagic (Director), Kris Stone (Sets), Jennifer Moeller (Costumes), Gina Scherr (Lights), and Sarah Pickett (Sound and Original Music).
