A candidly amateur dramatics group, led by local bus drivers in Dorset, England, spends a year creating an ambitious stage adaptation of Ridley Scott’s Alien. Their village-hall show is a crushing flop; all their hard work was seemingly for nothing...but in a surprise twist, fate gives them a second chance when they are invited to perform their DYI homage to the sci-fi horror classic at a London West End theatre, for one night only. With wobbly sets, awkward acting, and special effects requiring "more luck than judgement," what could go wrong?


After its world premiere at SXSW in March 2021, Alien on Stage has been charming audiences at film festivals across the world with its inspiring blend of DIY ingenuity, theatrical fearlessness, and human comedy. @alienonstagedoc

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!
