About the Premiere Production:


During the Cold War, German rocket scientist Arthur Rudolph was instrumental in helping America win the Space Race. When he is forced to confront his Nazi history, Rudolph and his wife are cast out of the country he has diligently served for nearly 40 years. Written by award-winning author and City Theatre favorite Keith Reddin (Human Error, The Missionary Position), this time-bending play explores the untold (and true) story of “Operation Paperclip” and questions the cost of burying the past in pursuit of the future.

Cast: Leroy McClain, Jonathan Tindle, Elizabeth Rich, Matthew Stocke, and David Whalen.
