The birth of Armageddon. The first H-bomb detonates and the proud father is Edward Teller. But he's on a collision course with Robert Oppenheimer, the inventor of the bomb that obliterated Hiroshima. Now Oppenheimer has turned pacifist and the government will stop at nothing to "neutralize" him. And Teller is their star witness!

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Jordan Baker, Corey Brill, John de Lancie, Reed Diamond, J. Michael Flynn, Raphael Sbarge, Joe Spano, Matt St. James, Simon Templeman, Granville Van Dusen, Geoffrey Wade and Margaret Welsh.

Oh! What wicked webs we weave.

Oppenheimer believed they wouldn't use the first one since showing was all that was necessary.

Interesting and well done but unfortunately focused only on the well know part of Teller life vs Oppenheimer

I enjoyed this tragedy, but I hoped the play focused on a later part of Teller’s life: Teller tensions with Oppenheimer are quite well known and documented, while I was curious about what came next.
