The Break-Away Project brought their production of It Came From Mars by Joseph Zettelmaier to the Pearse Centre, Dublin and Cleere’s Theatre, Kilkenny in April 2013.
We were also delighted to host Michigan playwright Joseph Zettelmaier, who participate in a question and answers session after the closing performance.
The Play: It’s October 30th 1938. In New York a troupe of radio actors 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. Honesty and hilarity ensue when the dramatic dramatists are faced with true drama.
Cast included Karen Davidson Perrins, Michael Heavey, Helena Byrne, Stephen Gorman, Ciarán McGlynn, Susan Barrett.
Directed by Anthony Kinahan.
