WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

On Tuesday, May 21, 1946, Louis Slotin's hand slipped -- a small, practically insignificant blunder were it not for the fact that Slotin was the chief bomb-builder at Los Alamos, and at that fateful moment, he released a burst of radiation. Louis Slotin Sonata uses a structure inspired by classical music's sonata allegro form to tell the story of a brilliant scientist's last nine days. David Moore directs this work by Paul Mullin. There is an added performance on Monday, April 9 at 8pm, and no performance on Tuesday, April 10.
