A War of the Worlds by Jarrett King

Presented by Penfold Theatre Company at Ground Floor Theatre, Austin TX

Jun 02 - 18 2022
A War of the Worlds by Jarrett King

Design by Corinna Browning of Ghost Next Door Designs

Combining careful historical research and savvy creative license, playwright Jarrett King connects Welles’ Depression Era world with our own.

Both comic and gripping, A War of the Worlds reimagines Orson Welles and his radio troupe as a group of Black artists fighting to hold their place at the CBS radio studio. In the hope of securing a critical corporate sponsorship, Welles orchestrates a last-ditch ratings stunt that causes national panic and secures their undeniable – if infamous – place in media history.

Thurs-Sat at 7:30pm and Sun at 5pm
ASL interpreted June 12 at 5pm

The cast includes Marc Pouhé as Welles, John
