“Recent Alien Abductions” , written and directed by Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas, enters its last weekend run at The Play Company. The main character Álvaro is certain that an episode of “The X-Files,” which he had seen while growing up in Puerto Rico, has been mysteriously altered since its broadcast. But no one believes him. It is a darkly compelling tale about the dread of having no one to trust, also about how families and nations keep circling places that haunt them. “Recent Alien Abductions” runs through March 24.
