The cast and creative team of OPERATION EPSILON.

Andy Sandberg directs an ensemble cast of eleven that includes Nicholas Armfield (Horst Korsching), Jamie Bogyo (Carl Friederich von Weizsäcker), Simon Bubb (Major T.H. Rittner), Simon Chandler (Max von Laue), Matthew Duckett (Erich Bagge), Jake Mann (Karl Wirtz), Olivier Award winner Nathaniel Parker (Otto Hahn), Peter Prentice (Paul Harteck), Leighton Pugh (Walter Gerlach), Simon Rhodes (Kurt Diebner), and Gyuri Sarossy (Werner Heisenberg). Operation Epsilon is produced by Ellen Berman.


OPERATION EPSILON tells the true story of Germany's ten foremost nuclear scientists who were rounded up and held captive in England by the British and American forces toward the end of World War II, as the Manhattan Project forged ahead in America.

The play is inspired by actual transcripts that were secretly recorded and then held classified for many decades. It shines a shine on the ethical complexity of scientific discovery and the catastrophic consequences that have the potential to happen.


OPERATION EPSILON is performing at the Southwark Playhouse Elephant from 15 September - 21 October 2023.
