Devil Boys from Beyond

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Dec. 19 2015

There are strange goings-on in Lizard Lick, Florida. People are buzzing about reports of flying saucers, and two locals, Florence and Dotty, claim that their husbands have been abducted by aliens. With the Cold War raging, some fear the Commies are behind it all. The New York papers send a couple pros down to get the scoop, but paranoia and old grudges stymie their best efforts. Buddy Thomas and Kenneth Elliott's campy sci-fi comedy Devil Boys from Beyond mocks B-movies and the politics of the Atomic Age. Stray Dog Theatre presents Devil Boys from Beyond at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (December 3 through 19) at Tower Grove Abbey (2336 Tennessee Avenue; 314-865-1995 or Tickets are $20 to $25.
