DFT recreates the colorful events surrounding the evening the infamous radio play, War of the Worlds, was broadcast in 1938. Many listeners took the announcement of an alien invasion as authentic news and a real-life panic ensued. This radio-play-within-a-radio-play, complete with vintage commercials, is a thrilling homage to the form’s golden age and a timely reminder of what fear can do to a society.
