WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE 1938 RADIO SCRIPT
By: Howard Koch based on the novel by H.G. Wells
Broadcast from New York’s Mercury Theatre in 1938, this infamous radio play, based on the novel by H.G. Wells, had many terrified listeners convinced that an actual alien invasion of Earth was taking place. The radio play created a panic throughout the country as listeners who tuned in late, did not realize that it was a dramatization.
Stevenson University is offering a streaming version of the play which was performed in the Inscape Theatre on the Greenspring Campus. The performance will be available to stream beginning on Friday, April 30, at 12:01 a.m. and end on Sunday, May 2, at 11:50 p.m.
