Eighty years ago, on a Sunday night in late October, Orson Welles and his Mercury Theatre of the Air presented their adaptation of H.G. Wells’, “War of the Worlds”. The creative and unusual presentation was mistaken by some listeners as an actual news broadcast of a Martian invasion. Our staged recreation of that still-remembered broadcast will be followed by a dessert reception.
