Having delivered a script for Sex and Disability and waiting for something to happen I have started work on Atomic!

This is intended to be a Brechtian version of the building of the first atomic bomb. In true Brechtian fashion the narrative will be broken up with songs, taking inspiration from the music of this time for example Jazz and Blues.

The central feature of the narrative will be the tension between the idealistic Jewish physicists who created the bomb and the American government that paid for it. As usual, the scientists dreamt that their weapon would bring an end to all war but things turned out differently.

I hope to have the script finished by the end of this year and the very talented Sharon Wright will be working with me on the songs.
