      In the Matter of J. Robert Oppenheimer

      Saint Sebastian Players at Saint Bonaventure Church

      A tense courtroom drama inspired by the Personnel Security Board’s secret hearing of “the father of the atomic bomb.” The material provides valuable insights into the development of the atomic bomb and the postwar debate among scientists about the hydrogen bomb, the conflict between the foreign policy and military establishments over national defense and the controversy about the proper standards to apply in assessing an individual’s loyalty. The play reveals the fears and anxieties that plagued America during the Cold War era—and perhaps even today.

      Cost: 15.00 to 20.00
