The cast of “Tales of the Lost Formicans” is (seated, from left) Sophya Zangri, Brooke Melek, Leslie Wilson and Martin Curry and (standing, from left) Sally Kessler, William Siebecker, Laura Comer and Liam Delmain. The play explores the life of an American family through the lens of alien anthropologists. (Contributed photo)
