Dramatic Presentations in 1938

This page will provide an overview of the range of relevant works produced in 1938. This currently includes an article (of which a version was included in the booklet distributed at the 2013 Worldcon) describing some of the shorter dramatic presentations that year, and a summary list below of as many as possible 1938 science fiction and fantasy dramatic presentations.

We will keep the list under review as further information becomes available, including where possible some further information about length of productions, episodes and series to help distinguish between the long and short form categories – so be sure to check back later to see if new items have been found for your consideration. If you're aware of any work which you believe should be added to the list, please email:
