Oppenheimer

Oppenheimer

Posted on behalf of Sunderland College Creative Arts - Performing Arts Department

1939: fascism spreads across Europe, Franco marches on Barcelona and two German chemists discover the processes of atomic fission. In Berkeley, California, theoretical physicists recognise the horrendous potential of this new science: a weapon that draws its power from the very building blocks of the universe. The ambitious and charismatic J Robert Oppenheimer finds himself uniquely placed to spearhead the largest scientific undertaking in all of human history.


Determined to cast off his radical past and struggling with tempestuous relationships with his colleagues, wife and mistress, Oppenheimer finds himself thrust into a position of power, racing to create a weapon so devastating that it would bring about an end not just to the Second World War, but to all war.


Sunderland College Actors bring to life this new spectacle for one night only. Showcasing their talent through a range of characters and disciplines. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to see local talent at its best in their final major project of the year.
