Director Needed for Fringe Play "The Drunkards"
6 August 1945, at the La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the Manhattan Project team is gathered to celebrate the successful dropping of the first non-experimental atomic bomb over Hiroshima. The partakers of this macabre dinner party are the scientists, led by R.J. Oppenheimer who, over the years prior to the mission, have been working on achieving nuclear fission in order to make the construction of the bomb possible. As the night progresses, the eight scientists - amongst whom some Nobel Prize laureates - plus Mrs Oppenheimer and General Graves of the U.S. Army, become more and more intoxicated, trying to come to terms with the consequences of their actions. Did they just do what had to be done, in order to win the war? Or did they irremediably abuse the power of science?
