"I love this play because it presents the goals of some of the most marginal members of our post 9-11 society, the pursuit of happiness by illegal aliens. Many social and economic problems that we face today are being blamed on illegal immigrants in the United States. Who are these people? Where do they come from? In this newly expanded version of Aliens with Extraordinary Skills we feel the pain of a young woman who is exploited and abused by some of the elite of society with no protection from police because she lives in fear of deportation. Will she persevere and be defeated, or find the inner resources to triumph over adversity? It is a story about clowns and cab drivers, dancers and bureaucrats, and love and laughter."
- Joan Kane, Director
