"The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything." -- Albert Einstein
Where is the line between good and bad; reason and science and truth and lies? The place of nuclear energy within our societies is inextricably linked to Chernobyl. But with such complex science involved, what story do we believe? Who do we trust? And what do we prioritise?
Power: A nuclear project is a new play in development by Why Theatre Company that follows the journey of a young scientist on a mission to help stop climate change through nuclear technology; trapped in a power struggle between right and wrong. For many people, nuclear energy automatically conjures up apocalyptic images of death and destruction or, alternatively, the comical ineptitude of characters like Homer Simpson working for ethically bankrupt CEOs like Mr.Burns. With these images at the forefront of our minds, how can we feel comfortable at the prospect of living next to a nuclear power plant? But are these feelings reflective of the reality of nuclear power?
Over the course of this multimedia performance, we invite our audience to debate this topic with us, and to decide whether there is a place in our precarious future for nuclear energy
