AUGUST 1945: German nuclear scientists are held captive in Farm Hall, an English country manor, as atomic bombs are on their way to Japan. As secret microphones record their conversations, the German scientists are unaware of why they are being held or for how long. How will they react to the news of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? How will they come to terms with the horrors of the Third Reich? 

This one-act play is based on transcripts of their conversations as well as the playwright's historical research on the subject. An audience discussion will follow each of the performances.

DAVID CASSIDY is a professor of natural sciences at Hofstra University in New York and is an internationally renowned science historian.
