Wells and Welles by Amy Crider

Moderator: TBD, Resident Playwright

It’s October of 1940, two years after Orson Welles’ famous War of the Worlds radio broadcast.  While both are on a lecture tour, Orson happens to be in San Antonio, Texas on the same day as HG Wells.  So he comes to HG’s motel room to ask a favor on a rainy night.  Two geniuses collide.  Inspired by a true story.


About the First Draft Series

The First Draft Series is an exclusive series of Tuesday-night play readings for and by First Draft Member playwrights. These are private, salon-style readings in which playwrights perform the roles and then discuss the plays in a format similar to that used in the Saturday Series. The discussions are moderated by a Resident Playwright or member of the artistic staff.
