October 30, 1938. While in rehearsal for their weekly radio play the cast and crew of “Farlowe’s Mystery Theatre Hour” hear a terrifying report over the radio – Martians have landed! Faced with Martian invasion and barricaded in their studio, passions ignite, secret identities are revealed and slapstick mayhem ensue when a washed-up director, his drama queen Ex, a wanna-be war hero, a ditzy actress, and a German sound effects wiz all think they are about to annihilated by men from Mars. Honesty and hilarity erupt as truth and loyalty square off against fear and paranoia. Scorpio brings this award-winning comedy to Calgary for its Canadian premiere. Directed a master comedian, Carl Bishop!
