The Mistake

By Michael Mears

Directed by Rosamunde Hutt

Direct from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, an urgent new play by Michael Mears exploring the events surrounding the catastrophic ‘mistake’ that launched our nuclear age.1942. On a squash court in Chicago a dazzling scientific experiment takes place, which three years later will destroy a city and change the world – forever. Through the lives of a brilliant Hungarian scientist, a daring American pilot and a devoted Japanese daughter, this fast-moving, compelling drama confronts the dangers that arise when humans dare to unlock the awesome power of nature.
