Fake Radio and Trepany House present our Halloween tradition: a chilling, 100% live re-enactment of the history-making broadcast of: "The War of the Worlds".
Originally performed the night before Halloween in 1938, the broadcast created such a stir that people actually thought there was a Martian invasion underway in Grover's Mill, New Jersey.
The landmark broadcast catapulted Orson Welles and his Mercury Radio Theatre into the national spotlight. Our show will feature a dramatic, faithful rendition of that original broadcast as well as a short, opening piece about the tumultuous life of Orson Welles.
Our special guest star will be: Jamie Farr from the hit TV show M*A*S*H!
Running time is approximately 90min with no intermission, to best allow for a proper Martian Invasion. There or may not be additional ghouls and goblins in the theatre. Please consult your astrologer and shamanic counsellor for how best to prepare.
