Riel Theatre presents: The War of the Worlds

On the 30th of Octo­ber 1938 Orson Welles’ Mer­cury The­atre on the Air broad­cast what would become one of the most infa­mous radio plays in his­to­ry.

Adapt­ed by and writ­ten by Howard Koch, and famous­ly direct­ed by Orson Welles, it adapt­ed H.G. Wells’ sto­ry of Mar­t­ian inva­sion to con­tem­po­rary Amer­i­ca and caused great con­tro­ver­sy at the time (not to men­tion cov­er­ing up the actu­al inva­sion by the Red Lec­troids).

Join us at the Claren­don Con­ser­va­to­ry from 7pm SLT on Thurs­day night or tune in to http://main.radioriel.org/
