War of the Worlds & The Lost World

Next Saturday, October 30, L.A. Theatre Works Radio Theatre Series will air The Lost World, written by Conan Doyle, adapted by John de Lancie, and starring JosH Clark, Kyle Colerider-Krugh, Peter Paige, Kirsten Potter, Kate Steele, Tom Virtue and Kenneth Alan Williams, and War of the Worlds, written by H.G. Wells and adapted by Howard Koch, starring John de Lancie, Leonard Nimoy, Meagan Fay, Jerry Hardin, Gates McFadden, Daryl Schultz, Armin Shimerman, Brent Spiner, Tom Virtue and Wil Wheaton.

The Lost World! is a novel released in 1912 by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that follows a scientific expedition deep into the Amazon jungle dinosaurs and cavemen can still be seen alive. The broadcast includes a conversation with Leonard Nimoy, and a special feature about the dinosaur exhibit at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum.

The War of The Worlds was an episode of the American radio drama anthology series Mercury Theatre on the Air. It was performed as a Halloween episode of the series on October 30, 1938 and aired over the Columbia Broadcasting System radio network. Directed and narrated by Orson Welles, the episode was an adaptation of H. G. Wells’ novel The War of the Worlds that caused a nationwide panic in 1938 as unwitting listeners believed that hostile Martians had really landed in New Jersey.

The broadcast can be heard locally in Southern California on Saturday from 10 pm to midnight on 89.3 KPCC, and can also be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.

Founded in 1974, the mission of L.A. Theatre Works (LATW) is to enrich the cultural life of our national community through the use of innovative technologies to produce and preserve significant works of dramatic literature on audio, and to assure the widest public access to these great works.
