NOT OF THIS EARTH – AN OUT OF THIS WORLD COMEDY IN TWO ACTS

Middle-aged father and divorcee Vic needed a way to get out of his stressful and mind-numbing job. So he does what any sensible man would do: fakes an alien abduction to get laid off on the basis of poor mental health, then start collecting early retirement. Sound planning, right? But as soon as he puts his plan into motion, he and those closest to him discover they’re in the midst of an actual alien invasion. That’s right: actual aliens in this out of this world comedy in two acts.

It turns out that Arthur, the renter who’s been living in Vic’s house, is actually an alien, living on Earth to research Vic’s life. All had been going smoothly until a superior race takes over Arthur’s home planet and sends two of their own, the sinister Quazanela and her lackey, Bip, to force their own agenda. With Quazanela now running the show, it’s going to take the extremely unlikely group of Vic, his daughter Molly, his mother Doreen, mother-in-law Elspeth, drinking buddy Howie, ex-wife Gillian, and Gillian’s new boyfriend, Geoffrey to figure out a way to save themselves — and possibly the whole human race!
