WHAT IS SPECIAL ORDER 937?
This special order is to forget pantomime and lovingly adapt the Hollywood sci-fi masterpiece Alien, no matter what the cost. That’s exactly what the Wilts and Dorset Bus Company amateur dramatics group did.
It became the sole obsession of an entire family and their community. Grandson, grandad, mother, father, sons, girlfriends, work colleagues, brothers, sisters, bus drivers, engineers, duty managers.
They spent a year making the sets, models, costumes, rehearsing the stunts and perfecting every little detail. Everyone was involved. They all did whatever it took to make this the best homage to the original masterpiece they could, so no wonder they were devastated to perform to a virtually empty village hall on opening night! But unbeknownst to them two of the few audience members knew they were witnessing something extraordinary.
