Show Information

7:30 pm
Bakehouse Black Box Theatre


Our play, “Orson Welles and the Mercury Theatre on the Air in The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells” (or “Mercury” for short) is about the men and women who put this broadcast together. Who they were; how they decided to write it; how they made it ready for the radio audience; and how it all went pear-shaped once listeners started to call the cops.
