In The Tear Drinkers, four humans are kidnapped by the United States government and brought to an underground holding tank in New Mexico to determine which of them is actually an alien from another planet masquerading as an earthling. There will be some singing.

Each performance will run approximately 15 – 20 minutes. Mike Iveson is presented within the 5:00pm – 7:00pm set. Follow by a short discussion, moderated by Helen Shaw.
