This world premiere play explores  the life and work of physicist Lise Meitner, co-discoverer of nuclear fission, the place of women in science and the relationship of science and art. We are excited to be presenting our first world premiere play: Delicate Particle Logic, by Jennifer Blackmer. This beautiful play explores the relationship between science and art through the story of the discovery of nuclear fission.

Under the harshly male-dominated science elite of the time, she broke through to become the leader of a major scientific institute, and the first woman to have the title of “Professor” in all of Germany.
