"...superb ensemble work."
The Observer

From a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The War of the Worlds is inspired by H.G. Wells’ sci-fi novel and Orson Welles’ radio adaptation and the wild reaction it inspired. Rhum and Clay’s theater piece wrestles with the media and the boundaries of truth in a thrilling broadcast of the end of the world.

In August of 2019, we took our Advisory Council members to the Edinburgh festivals and this was a favorite. In an era where facts are constantly being questioned, this production is an interesting look at one of the original "fake news" stories that captured the attention of the world.
