See the hoax that the FCC labeled an act of terrorism!

On October 30, 1939 twelve million people were sent into a state of panic when they started tuning in to live reports of a Martian invasion. Come relive the broadcast and see how millions fell into pandemonium. This new production exposes the tricks behind the original radio cast by reliving it through the perspective of its listeners. Discover how the news can make us fall into fear and weild our notion of reality. As Mr. Welles says, “Don’t drink everything that comes out the tap.”

Directed by: Aradhana Tiwari and Joseph Fletcher

War of the Worlds wants you to break the rules. In the spirit of mass media and
information sharing, we invite you tweeters to tweet during the show. Share with the
world your experience in real time. Help us conduct our own information invasion!

Here’s how it works:

You’ll show up for the play on Saturday August 9th with your Blackberry, Palm
Pilot, Iphone, etc—and we will ask you to leave… your cell phone on! We will then
usher you to your Tweet Seat (designated area in the theatre just for you!) and you may
tweet away during the performance! Be a part of the information infiltration!

Don't twitter from your phone? Sign up for an account on and enable any device you use to send text messages. Use #WotW when tweeting about this

If Friday is better for you-

Hey guys! One of our sponsors, Tastings, has invited us for a drink on them. We'd love to hang out with everyone after the show Friday night. War of the Worlds cast will probably be there around 9:30. Bring your playbills for a complimentary drink! And by the way, the Funky Monkey would love for you to visit them with your playbill for your complimentary drink as well. Support those who support the local indie arts groups! We couldn't have done it without them.

Check out their site-

can't wait to see you next time!
