Time Machines and Martian Invasions: The Worlds of H.G. Wells – A Live Radio Play Experience
Step back into a bygone era and witness the magic of radio drama reborn in “Time Machines and Martian Invasions: The Worlds of H.G. Wells.” Drawing from the visionary tales of H.G. Wells, this live performance interlaces two seminal radio adaptations: a uniquely British reimagining of Orson Welles’ 1938 Martian catastrophe, set in the UK of 1939, and the riveting chronicles of “The Time Machine,” as brought to life by the iconic ‘Escape’ radio series.
Set within the ambience of a 1930s radio studio, audiences will be enchanted as our ensemble cast transport you between two unforgettable worlds.
Begin with a heart-racing descent into chaos as Martians lay siege to the British countryside, invoking the sheer terror and resilience of humanity under extraterrestrial threat. Then, shift gears to a mind-bending expedition across time’s vast expanse, journeying to both ancient epochs and the farthest reaches of mankind’s future, where danger and wonder coalesce.
“Time Machines and Martian Invasions: The Worlds of H.G. Wells” celebrates the enduring genius of Wells and the golden age of radio.
This one-of-a-kind performance combines the magic of live theatre, the thrill of suspenseful storytelling, and the nostalgia of old-time radio.
