Part of the week-long staged reading series of New Works by New Jersey Playwrights, presented by the New Jersey Theatre's that support them. This evening, a new play from Luna Stage.

A young man grapples with his grandfather’s legacy and participation in the development of the atomic bomb at Los Alamos, New Mexico in 1945. Torn by a battle between his patriotism and his conscience, his grandfather made a decision that haunted him and his family forever.
