The War of the Worlds Radio Drama
The War of the Worlds, originally written by H.G. Wells, is one of the all-time classic audio dramas recorded in 1938 by Orson Welles and Mercury Theater on the Air. As the Secryt Department of Propaganda returns to the world of radio dramas, this was one of the first performances to be considered for a remake. This is a serious undertaking and tackling a classic of this nature requires the best possible audio production possible. We feel we are up to the challenge.
Initial meetings to listen to the original performance, discuss the script and contemplate changes will take place in mid-May. We will move into rewrites and casting (22 roles) to prepare for a June/July recording session of this performance. We hope we can maintain the engagement and power the original offered.
