      The War of the Worlds was broadcast from New York’s Mercury Theatre in 1938. This infamous radio play had many terrified listeners convinced that an actual alien invasion of Earth was taking place. If you survive the alien attack, you will then be treated to a selection of Edgar Allen Poe’s stories, read in all their terrifying details. We will also explore the legend of Poe and his rumored travels to Newark, Delaware. All of this is staged as a 1930s live radio broadcast in front of a live studio audience — YOU! It is an opportunity to see what it was like before TV and videogames when a few actors played numerous characters and the sound effects were performed live by a sound artist.
