Co-directed and written by Danielle Kummer and Lucy Harvey, Alien on Stage is a genuine jolt of positivity in an otherwise bleak year. A riotous celebration of artistic expression and can-do spirit, this documentary has unexpectedly taken the world by storm with its endearing story centered on a crew of Dorset bus drivers whose amateur theater group takes on the bold task of adapting Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic Alien into a stage play.

The results are imperfect yet welcomed by a London West End audience that falls in love with the gang’s passion for performing and the sense of camaraderie the collective embodies. Join us for the Swedish premiere of what has become the feel good genre movie of the year and witness just how far dedication to your craft can take you regardless of budgetary constraints or professional training. If Alien on Stage makes one thing clear, it’s that having heart can still go a very long way.
