The Stage (UK)

“Playwright Alan Brody’s smart, incisive play is based on real, secretly recorded transcripts of the scientists’ conversations, which lends a crisp realism to the dialogue. It is an unhurried, elegantly written piece, meticulously charting the subtle interplay of the characters’ guilt, ambition and obsessive scientific curiosity.”

“Andy Sandberg’s production plays a straight bat, unfolding on Janie E Howland’s detailed cutaway house set. It struggles a little for dynamism...The proliferation of characters makes it difficult to get a full handle on each one, and the scale of it feels bloated...But it’s an undoubtedly diverting couple of hours shining a light on a little-known aspect of the war effort.”

“Well-written and admirably interested in sharing a less widely discussed part of military history, ‘Operation Epsilon’ has been made with a clear understanding of the period and the significance of the events its story surrounds...Morality is complicated, and I'm glad to see a willingness to explore this in the arts.”

“ ‘Operation Epsilon’ could be a very static play – it’s a lot of men talking about topics most of the audience won’t understand (unless they happen to be nuclear physicists, anyway), when you boil it down to the bare bones – but thanks to Andy Sandberg’s direction, the talking stays engaging and even discussions about science and nuclei still have movement around them.”

“What is truly fascinating about this play is the fact that the script is based upon real transcripts from these recordings, which allows one to truly feel that they are experiencing engaging, raw moments in history.”
