The year is 1945. In the remote New Mexico desert, J. Robert Oppenheimer and a growing army of colleagues develop a weapon that could end all life on Earth. In this hard-hitting and intimate play, Oppenheimer struggles to control the titanic forces he would unleash and balance the threat of the Nazis, his own emotional needs, and his seesaw relationships with his wife Kitty, his brother Frank, and his lover Jean. Intimate and lightning fast, Irreversible reminds us of the cost of genius, the threat of extinction, and the inexorable human thirst for knowledge.
$12 general admission, $6 students

After the show on Saturday, May 19, the cast and crew will join Jack Karp, author of Irreversible, for a talkback. Join us for refreshments as well as a lively and thought-provoking discussion about the show and the history behind it.
