Tom Morton-Smith's new play takes us into the heart of the Manhattan Project and explores the tension between the scientific advances that will shape our understanding of the fabric of the universe. Struggling to cast off his radical past and thrust into a position of power, the ambitious and charismatic J Robert Oppenheimer spearheads human history's largest scientific undertaking.
