The Aliens coming to East Hanover

Microsoft Word - Official Flyer.docxThe Aliens is a play by a new theatre group, Pulse Theatre Company. These guys are putting on a production right in our own Gandhi Garden for 3 straight days next weekend! To quote the official press release:

“Annie Baker’s The Aliens is a play about two angry young men who, despite their own difficult lives, decide to teach a lonely high school student everything they know. They help him break through his nervous shell and give him the courage to be his own man and even speak to girls. A play about struggle, drugs, love, and friendship, this production found its way into Downtown Trenton, produced by Pulse Theatre Company. The Aliens is to be performed on Labor Day Weekend at the Gandhi Garden, a new venue constructed out of a vacant lot on East Hanover Street by S.A.G.E. Coalition. True to its mission, Pulse aims to bring a beautiful work of theatre to an audience that appreciates passionate and intimate art.”

There you have it. We are excited to see what these guys can do. You’ll have 3 chances to see the play, on Saturday and Sunday and Monday, August 31st, Sept 1st and 2nd. Each showing starts at 6:30pm. Admission is free.
