Theatre Alliance to perform outdoor production of Devil Boys from Beyond – Yes! Weekly

Flying Saucers! Backstabbing Broads! Muscle Hunks and Men in Pumps! Wake up and smell the alien invasion in this outrageous comedy!

Set in 1957, "Devil Boys From Beyond" accentuates the parallels between the Red Scare of the time and the sci-fi fears of alien invasion. Lucinda claims to be the "queen of the Blacklist," threatening to destroy the careers of Mattie and Gregory, and also label their editor Gil as a communist. But while the play toys with the red-baiting paranoia of the 1950s, it also features contemporary resonances. And you dont get much closer to drag heaven on earth than characters in diaphanous baby-doll lingerie and kitten heels, transformed from ignant trailer-trash hausfrau into hardboiled alien sex slaves.
