SXSW 2021: Interview — Alien on Stage

Alien on Stage is the best kind of success story. It is about a troop of bus drivers moonlighting as amateur entertainers who want to put on a stage production of Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979). The documentary is the story of how their workmanlike production began on a small stage in Dorset before maximizing the show’s notoriety online, and landing a prime spot on stage in London’s West End. It is the story of workers creating the most amazing fan art. It was all I could do to write a glowing review. Everything about the film resounded beautifully with what I value about the incredible original film and keyed into something crucial about workers making art. So, inspired by their work, the next step was to interview both of its directors, Danielle Kummer and Lucy Harvey, about their wonderful new film.
