ESSENTIAL-NONESSENTIAL: PART 64 - Jessie Fahay: Cause a Sci-Fi Ripple Effect

May 7th, 2020

Jessie Fahay, founding artistic director of Ripple Effect Artists, has scored a media triumvirate. The live theatre company (that's 1) recently branched out into indie film (that's 2) and - in honor of Orson Welles' birthday - will present arguably the most famous and easily historic radio play (that's 3) WAR OF THE WORLDS on Station WPKN on the internet (ooops, I guess that make 4) as a fundraiser for CoVid-19 relief. 

Jessie was somewhat surprised when i pointed out that she is rapidly becoming a sci-fi company as well.  

WAR OF THE WORLDS (of course) plus her new film, HERE COMES FRIEDA is a disaster tale set in the scary future; two previous works, 2071 (a climate change cautionary tale) and her first AEA contract production, THE ADDING MACHINE, Elmer Rice's 1930s classic about a dystopian future brought about by ... calculators.  

All this has earned her a place IN THE PASSIONPIT and IN THE DARK on TERROR TV (https://terrortv.com/inthedark/)
