ALIEN ON STAGE (UK)
SYNOPSIS: Why do pantomime when you can do Alien? A very amateur dramatics group led by Dorset Bus Drivers spent a year creating a serious stage adaptation of the sci-fi, horror film, Alien. Their village-hall show is a crushing flop; it seems their hard work was for nothing but fate gives them a second chance to perform their homemade homage in a West End theatre, for one night only. With wobbly sets, awkward acting and special effects requiring ‘more luck than judgement.’ Will it be alright on the night?

Danielle and Lucy have been friends for 14 yrs. They discovered Alien on Stage completely by accident and they thought it was so brilliant that it must be seen by everyone. It became their passion and their first feature length documentary. They proudly present this film as a celebration of the spark of madness and genius that occurs when people commit to the challenge of creating something together, purely because they love doing it!
