It Came From Mars
by Joe Zettelmaier
Directed by Aggie Alt
"Farlowe's Mystery Theatre Hour" is in rehearsal for its weekly radio show when an alarming announcement comes over the radio: Martians have landed! The actors fly into hysterics, barricading themselves in the studio, not expecting to live to see the next day. Passions ignite, secret identities are revealed, and slapstick mayhem ensues when a washedup director, his drama queen ex, a wannabe war hero, a ditzy actress, and a German sound effects wiz all think they are about to be annihilated by men from Mars. Winner of the 2009 Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award, and nominee for the Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association Award.
