L.A. Theatre Works: The War of the Worlds

This radio play from the L.A. Theatre Works series presents H. G. Wells' The War of the Worlds. Join actors from Star Trek as they recreate this classic radio thriller. The breathless pace and convincing details make it clear why the 1938 broadcast of an "eyewitness report" of an invasion from Mars caused a nationwide panic. Originally directed by Orson Welles, The War of the Worlds is an adaptation of H. G. Wells' novel of the same name.

Recording top screen and stage actors in state of the art productions, L.A. Theatre Works transforms great works of theatre into intimate, compelling, and sound-rich plays. Its Audio Theatre Collection is the largest of its kind in the world.
