A War of the Worlds

Show Information

In this 80-minute live virtual audio drama, H.G. Wells enters the 21st century as a science journalist thrust into the events of an alien invasion from the “Red Planet” Mars. Actors play dozens of characters in a theatre experience unlike any other, created by a company critically-acclaimed for its “innovative,” “elaborate,” and “viscerally compelling” storytelling.

H.G. Wells enters the 21st century as a Chicago science journalist thrust into the events of an alien invasion after a meteor from the “Red Planet” Mars crashes outside the suburbs of Chicago at the start of the new decade. Separated from family, friends and everything they’ve ever known, the eclectic cast of Chicagoland characters must do everything in their power to survive as our world comes crashing down around them. As the Martians reveal their deadly Heat-Ray and their true intentions, whirling our characters into hair-raising chases across Chicago one question remains: is life on Earth doomed?
