When Words Collide 2011 – “War of the Worlds” Performance

Last week at the first annual When Worlds Collide convention in Calgary (August 12-14, 2011), one of the panels was a live performance of Orson Welles’ “War of the Worlds” radio play, based on HG Wells’ book. Yes, this is the same play that made many think aliens had invaded the US. Unfortunately, I only was able to use the first 35 minutes or so – the stuff after the intermission didn’t come out well at all; a fact I attribute to covering the mic with my finger or something on my iPhone. But it’s still an entertaining performance recorded for posterity.
