Delicate Particle Logic

Heralded as the woman who stole the bomb from the Nazis, physicist Lise Meitner became a human enigma when she fled battle-ravaged Germany directly into obscurity. The war long over, she visits with the painter Edith Hahn, wife of chemist Otto Hahn, and the two women reminisce, open up old wounds, and dissect the teeming worlds of possibility. Blending art and science, Delicate Particle Logic depicts the untold stories of nuclear fission, both real and rumor.

"One of the impressive things about Jennifer Blackmer’s play is just how many plates she sets spinning before managing to pull it all together into a cohesive work. "
