A reading of the original script

Performed by Brewster Theatre Company’s Armchair Actors

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. Adapted by Howard E. Koch, co-writer of Casablanca, and directed and narrated by Orson Wells, this original script details the frightening tale of an extraterrestrial takeover.
