This controversial play traces the emotional conflicts of Sonia
Pretorius, beautiful, brilliant and articulate spokesperson for the
nuclear power industry, and her conflicts with her scientist father, her
green sister, her frazzled and lovesick boss, and her father's cynical
girlfriend. As Sonia's world begins to collapse around her, the tension
in her grows and moves her closer and closer to a meltdown.
Commissioned by The Ensemble Studio Theatre in New York as part of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Science & Technology Project and developed earlier at the McCarter Theatre in Princeton.
