Louis Slotin Sonata
Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
At 3:20 PM on Tuesday, May 21, 1946 Louis Slotin's hand slipped--a small, practically insignificant blunder, except that Slotin was the chief bomb builder at Los Alamos, and at that fateful moment he held in his hands a plutonium bomb core named "Rufus". With a structure inspired by classical music's sonata allegro form - and dance numbers with President Truman and Albert Einstein - Louis Slotin Sonata traces the true story of a brilliant scientist's last nine days, as his body and mind gradually succumb to the chaos wreaked by radiation.
