Seeing Our Way Back into Radio Theater
By: PATRICIA HILDEBRANDT
Utah radio theater producer Troy Thayne and co- producer Clyde Hettrick have created a new audio version of H.G. Wells' classic science fiction story "War of the Worlds"
Thayne’s first show, “War of the Worlds,” is produced “by the blind, for the blind.” Since most “War of the Worlds” movies were set in the U.S. , Thayne wanted his to be a more authentic telling of H.G. Wells’ story. Scriptwriter Sidney Williams, whose father was blind late in life, set the story in England , and the actors actually live in the area where the story is set. The story is true to the book, and Thayne manages to keep the “old time radio feel” to the production.

Not as good as expected
First of all this is a piecemeal dramatization.
I was expecting a quality similar to Leonard's adaptation.
This is wooden, the ambience is wrong and the accent is horrible at times.
Regret buying this.
Iam a fan of War of Worlds and have two audio plays, the original book, two movies. I regret buying this edition.
