Playwrights: Orson Welles, adptd from H.G. Wells
Director: Rush Rehm
Drama
$15-$25
8/14-24

In this theatrical re-creation of Welles’s famous 1938 radio broadcast, a group of actors in a radio studio create the illusion of an invasion from Mars, in the spirit of Halloween fun. Or is it? What do we, or should we, believe? Anticipating the deafening noise of the corporate media, Welles’s The War of the Worlds offers a delightful, albeit sobering, exposé of gullibility, doubt, fear, rumor, magic and fabrication.
