Presented by 2017/2018 Ivy Tech Student Productions Series H.G. Welles' The War of the Worlds
Whether or not it created the mass hysteria reported by the print media, when Orson Welles decided that Martians should invade the sleepy town of Grover's Mill, New Jersey, on October 30, 1938, he and The Mercury Theatre on the Air created a cultural phenomenon. In the current media climate, with news outlets catering their stories to niche audiences, Welles' drama is as relevant as ever. Whether you choose to consider the ideas on a grand scale, or simply want to hear Professor Pierson flee the invading enemy as it terrorizes the eastern seaboard, join us at the Bishop for spirits and stories on a Sunday.
