It Came From Mars by Joseph Zettelmaier
Directed by Joseph Zettelmaier
Award winning playwright and veteran Schoolcraft Theatre director, Joseph Zettelmaier returns in March with It Came From Mars, which features a troupe of radio actors in the 1930s who attempt to rehearse their own show the night that Orson Welles delivers his famous War of the Worlds broadcast. The actors fly into hysterics, believing they’re about to be obliterated by aliens. Truth and loyalty square off against fear and paranoia. Joseph Zettelmaier delights in this farce which was nominated for the Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association Award in 2010, and has enjoyed performances in the U.S., Ireland and Canada.
