All day every day, two slackers hang out behind a coffee shop by the dumpsters. These guys have elevated loitering to an almost Buddhist “tea ceremony” level, where music, Bukowski, sex, travel, philosophy, friendship, and ambition – or lack thereof – are intensely meditated upon while the busy world rushes by. Enter a 17 year-old barista-cum-disciple, and so begins a summer where no one moves but everything changes.

The Aliens features A Red Orchid Ensemble Member Steve Haggard (Jasper), with Brad Akin (KJ), and Michael Finley (Evan).
