The War of the Worlds

Northern Stage

In the unfathomable darkness of empty space, an invisible missile starts its journey to Earth from Mars. And another. And another. And another...

Ten missiles fired at the unsuspecting Earth and rushing through the empty gulf of space. Ten missiles carrying an invading force of Martians, their intellects vast, cool and unsympathetic. Hour by hour, day by day, closer and closer the Martians come, ready for war and the massacre of mankind.

The War of the Worlds charts the fortunes of a band of survivors as they become refugees in their own country, forced to flee from an unknown and unprovoked enemy, and battle against the devastation and destruction of their planet. Northern Stage's vivid and dynamic new production relocates H.G. Wells' iconic novel to the North East of England, in a contemporary re-telling of a sci-fi classic.
