Black Chair Project "War of the Worlds" - May 20th

 

Black Chair Project Presents:  
"The War of the Worlds: The 1938 Radio Script"
by Howard E. Koch, Directed by Reinikka McKaughan
 
On Sunday, October 30, 1938, millions of radio listeners were shocked when radio news alerts announced the arrival of Martians. They panicked when they learned of the Martians' ferocious and seemingly unstoppable attack on Earth. Many ran out of their homes screaming while others packed up their cars and fled. Though what the radio listeners heard was a portion of Orson Welles' adaptation of the well-known book, War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells, many of the listeners believed what they heard on the radio was real.

Hours after the program had ended and listeners had realized that the Martian invasion was not real, the public was outraged that Orson Welles had tried to fool them.
