Inspired by a real story found in the newspaper, Romanian-born playwright Saviana Stanescu's Aliens With Extraordinary Skills premiered in London in March 2016 at the Leicester Square Theatre. This new project aims to create a bridge and establish a significant connection between young Romanian talent living in London and their community.

The story is set in New York, the city where people are always busy and a bit "zombie", living the American Dream with their eyes-wide open 24/7 . Two immigrant clowns, a girl from Moldova and a boy from Russia, arrive here on fake visas as "aliens with extraordinary abilities" in the circus, struggling to get the precious Green Card in their almost empty pockets.
