On Halloween in 1938, Orson Welles' adaptation of the science fiction novel, The War of the Worlds by H.G Wells was broadcast to an unsuspecting American audience.
The next morning, the front page headline of the New York Times read “Radio Listeners in Panic, Taking War Drama as Fact” and heralded the radio play's place in broadcast history.
This Halloween Night, the Perth Cultural Centre Screen - with a cast of theatrical luminaries - will recreate the historic performance augmented by the electronic sounds of musical aficionados MotET, as they perform MotET'S War of the Worlds.
