OPERATION EPSILON, by Alan Brody, directed by Andy Sandberg | March 7 - April 28, 2013 | World Premiere | presented by The Nora Theatre Company, a project of Catalyst Collaborative@MIT | It's the close of World War II - the dawn of the atomic age. The Allies have captured Germany's top ten nuclear scientists and sequestered them at Farm Hall - a lavish estate in England - keeping them under surveillance to learn what they know about the American nuclear program and to gauge how close the Nazis are to making an atomic bomb. Nine of these men, including Nobel Prize winners Otto Hahn and Werner Heisenberg, are known as Hitler's "Uranium Club." Based on actual transcripts of secretly recorded conversations, playwright Alan Brody illuminates the ethical complexity of pursuing scientific discovery at the risk of wreaking catastrophic consequences.
