Broadcast from New York's Mercury Theatre in 1938, this infamous radio play, based on the novel by H. G. Wells, had many terrified listeners convinced that an actual alien invasion of Earth was taking place. Presented live at Russell Hall by the USM Department of Theatre as a classic radio play with live sound effects, this delightfully frightful tale of an extraterrestrial takeover is sure to thrill.
