Show Synopsis

Based on the novel by H.G. Wells, The War of the Worlds radio drama shocked the world when it first aired on October 30th, 1938. Many who tuned in late to Orson Welles's historic broadcast mistook it for an actual news bulletin, believing that Earth was indeed under attack by Martian invaders. Featuring performers from the greater Boston area, as well as live foley effects artists, the show will recreate the experience of a live radio drama in the making.
