Stanford Live presents the U.S. premiere of London-based Rhum and Clay Theatre Company’s “The War of the Worlds” 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday at Bing Concert Hall, 327 Lasuen St. on the Stanford campus.

Inspired by Orson Welles’ radio play of the same name, playwright Isley Lynn’s comedic adaptation has been reimagined for the era of disinformation and “fake news.” With the media in mind, the play wrestles with the boundaries of truth in a broadcast of the end of the world.

Tickets start at $32.
