A quirky, comedy about aliens and suburban humans, Tales of the Lost Formicans is a play that explores dysfunctional family life, chaos and change. Cathy, a single mother, recently divorced, has to leave New York to return to her parents' home in the suburbs of Colorado, with her rebellious teenage son in tow, because her father is beginning to lose his mind. Once she arrives there, she encounters a group of unusual characters including: her old childhood friend, a man obsessed with conspiracy theories who is attracted to her, and her own disintegrating family. Aliens appear throughout the play to narrate and explain the behavior of the humans to the audience.
