A re-imagined and fully staged version of the "The War of the Worlds - The 1938 Radio Drama". The original was performed and broadcast live at 8 pm ET on October 30, 1938, over the CBS Radio Network and is famous for inciting a panic by convincing some members of the listening audience that a Martian invasion was really taking place. Watch as our second-year theatre students put their own quirky twist on this modern classic.
