Synopsis: October 30, 1938. While in rehearsal for their weekly radio play the cast and crew of
“Farlowe’s Mystery Theatre Hour” hear a terrifying report over the radio – Martians have landed! Faced with Martian invasion and barricaded in their studio; passions ignite, secret identities are revealed and slapstick mayhem ensues when a washed-up director, his drama queen Ex, a wanna-be war hero, a ditzy actress, and a German sound effects wiz all think they are about to annihilated by men from Mars. Honesty and hilarity erupt as truth and loyalty square off against fear and paranoia.
