Circle X Theatre Co. in association will present two free Zoom readings of Louis Slotin Sonata by Paul Mullin, directed by John Langs. The commemorative readings will take place on Friday May 21, which is the 75th anniversary of Louis Slotin’s criticality accident at Los Alamos. The readings will take place at 7pm EST (with Live Captioning) and 7pm PST. With a structure inspired by classical music’s sonata allegro form, Louis Slotin Sonata traces a brilliant scientist’s last nine days, as his body and mind gradually succumb to the chaos wreaked by radiation.  Reliving the moment of his accident again and again, Slotin slowly makes his own way to redemption. Originally commissioned by A Contemporary Theatre as part of their FirstACT play development program, the play premiered at Circle X Theatre in Los Angeles and went on to win the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Outstanding World Premiere. The cast for the reading is Allen Fitzpatrick, Jeff Galfer, Ameenah Kaplan, Rich Liccardo, Amy Love, Michelle Noh, Brandon O’Neill, Chip Sherman and Allan Wasserman.
