A band of British bus drivers are undertaking something pretty special for their annual amateur theater performance: With their shoestring budget counterweighted by an effervescent vision and unremitting passion, they’re adapting Ridley Scott’s Alien for the community theater stage, where their adaptation—complete with chestburster, facehugger, and xenomorph—bombs rather unceremoniously. But the theater-makers are given a second chance: at London’s West End. Alien On Stage recounts their incredible journey, making it one of the most warmhearted, heartwarming movies of this year’s festival.
