War of the Worlds (On a Budget)

Step aside HG Wells, take a break Jeff Wayne, go back to your trailer Tom Cruise, Lamphouse is tackling War of the Worlds and they’re doing it…..on a budget!

War of Worlds (on a budget) features one actor, a loop pedal, lots of cardboard, many many hats and at least two absolutely terrifying (definitely not made out of paper) tripod puppets. Can our hero outrun the aliens, play 25 characters, unwind himself from the microphone cable, stop for a tea break and save the day before it’s too late?

Featuring a full soundtrack of brand new music, and paying homage to HG Wells’ story with a few extra silly additions, War of the Worlds (on a budget) is the musical comedy action adventure we didn’t know we needed!

War of the Worlds (On a Budget) encompasses everything Lamphouse does best, from epic music to slightly disappointing cardboard props and one actor desperately trying to tell an enormous story while everything falls down around them.
