WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Next Voice You Fear is an original stage adaptation of the infamous "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast of Halloween, 1938. Approximately six million people had tuned into the broadcast, and nearly two million listeners believed the terrifying news they heard to be true - that a Martian invasion of the Earth was underway. The story is not limited to the confines of CBS Studio One in New York City, where Orson Welles and his "Mercury Theatre on the Air" arguably perpetrated the greatest mass-hoax in American history. The play goes far beyond - to paint a portrait of a nation - from San Francisco to Providence, Rhode Island - gripped with panic in the face of this horrifying tale told through the bold new medium of the age - radio.
