Aliens with Extraordinary Skills

Ego Actus presented Aliens with Extraordinary Skills by Saviana Stanscu, directed by Joan Kane.

The show opened November 2, 2011 at Theatre 54 at Shetler Studios.


This play presents the goals of some of the most marginal members of our post 9-11 society, the pursuit of happiness by illegal aliens. 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.


The cast featured Debby Brand, Doug Rossi, Abby Savage, Viet Vo, Gabrielle Young, and Richard Zekaria.


The crew included set by Starlet Jacobs, costumes by Erica E. Evans, lights by Bruce A! Kraemer, sound by Ian Wehrle, stage manager Jennifer Ainsworth and press rep Michael Martinez.
