The Mistake - Michael Mears

16 September @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£11 – £12

This show will run for approximately 80 minutes with no interval, followed by an informal Q&A session with Michael during which the bar will be open.

One of the successes at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and following a sell-out run at London’s trailblazing Arcola Theatre, this urgent new play by Michael Mears explores 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. Two actors, one British, one Japanese, enact the compelling stories of a brilliant Hungarian scientist, a daring American pilot and a devoted Japanese daughter, in a fast-moving, thought-provoking drama about the dangers that arise when humans dare to unlock the awesome power of nature.

Written by Michael Mears.
Winner of a Spirit of the Fringe Award Edinburgh 2022. Shortlisted for the Sit-Up Award Edinburgh 2022
Performed by Michael Mears and Riko Nakazono.
Directed by Rosamunde Hutt.
