FORGET the old notions of creatures from outer space attacking Earth with laser beams and mind control.
Aliens are on their way to our planet this weekend – Ilfracombe to be exact – but they only want one thing: your underpants.
The national bestseller Aliens Love Underpants is recreated on the stage by Big Wooden Horse company, and tells the story of a gang of mischievous extra-terrestrials on a visit to Earth. But do they want to conquer us? Not quite. Their target is not the White House but the washing line.
Follow the insane intruders as they rummage for pants – be they big or small, red or green, Grandma's spotted bloomers or Grandad's tatty long johns. Can anyone stop them in their dastardly tracks?
Who knows, but there's sure to be fun aplenty along the way.
Aliens Love Underpants is at the Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe on Sunday, October 6, 2.30pm. Tickets: £11 (full), £36 (family), £8.50 (schools). Box office: 01271 324242, www.northdevontheatres .org.uk.
