About the Play:

A New Play by Joe Landry

Place: Here. The stage of Fairfield Ludlowe High School. With some action suggesting a radio station and other locations.

Time: Now. With some action suggesting Sunday, October 30, 1938 and other times.

You’re part of Fairfield Ludlowe High School’s Media Studies class performance-based assessment. Tonight’s subject is the topic of fake news, presented as a fast-paced adventure through the culture of fear. Destinations include a spin on the most infamous broadcast of all time, a hip-hop mini-musical of an apocalyptic bedtime story, and a climax never before seen on a public stage! Will the audience leave with more than a folded program and a torn ticket stub? Don’t touch that dial! The art of fake news is about to be taken to dizzying heights.
