"No-one would have believed in the early years of the twentieth century that this world was being watched...”  But we did believe. 


We believed that Martians landed in New Jersey. We believed a water tower was an alien war machine. We believed a man walked on the moon. We believe everything the internet tells us and now the end of the world is being broadcast live...

Inspired by H.G. Wells’ sci-fi novel and Orson Welles’ classic radio play, this legendary science fiction thriller is playfully reimagined for our era of Fake News and ‘alternative facts’.

This show has been rescheduled from Thu 21 to Sat 23 May 2020
