"...a fast and clever show."
"...superb ensemble work."
This work looks back through history and speaks to our times. Inspired by H.G. Wells’ sci-fi novel and Orson Welles’ radio adaptation and the wild reaction it inspired, Rhum and Clay’s The War of the Worlds wrestles with the media and the boundaries of truth in a thrilling broadcast of the end of the world.
