Tales of the Lost Formicans is an affectionate interplanetary romp. Cathy’s husband has left her for a much younger woman. She leaves her life in New York and, son in tow, returns to Colorado to live with her parents. Dealing with her father’s increasing dementia, her perpetually angry teenage son, and the attentions of the local conspiracy nut, proves to be almost more than she can handle.
For this production, we worked with the Department of Gerontology to learn more about Alzheimer’s and its effects on the victim and their families, because one of the characters, Jim, suffers from it.
The cast includes: Bethany Bresnahan as Cathy, Randy Breedlove as Jim, Ankita Ashrit as Evelyn, Noah Diaz as Jerry, Enrique Madera as Eric, Kameron Shelley as Judy, and Shae’Kell Butler and Angie Reynolds as the Aliens.
