War of the Worlds Reimagined is an original radio play by Frog in Hand, inspired by the classic tale by H.G. Wells.

Join us over zoom on Fridays and Saturdays in September, turn off your camera and close your eyes… Escape your screen and immersive yourself in a world of sound. Our thrilling audio drama, “War of the Worlds Reimagined,” is a response to crisis fuelled by science fiction, inspired by the writing of H. G. Wells. You will witness remarkable friendships, and hear eerie encounters with the unknown. Playwrights Andrew Gaboury, Colleen Snell & Callahan Connor each crafted a chapter in this three-part adventure. We recommend bringing headphones for an optimal experience, and our zoom listening party includes a brief intermission. Plug in, kick back, and discover why radio is the “theatre of the imagination.”

 

Access to the full-series is $10 through a Vimeo link, with the payment unlocking the password to the showing.
