Know Theatre’s Andrew J. Hungerford Goes Nuclear with Cutting-Edge Play ‘Sand’ via CityBeat

“So you want to make a simple nuclear bomb?”

It’s now the sixth of August 1945.
She is alone.
god, my head.
At 8:15 in the morning, everything is quiet.
The house is still. 
Thirty-one thousand feet above her, there is a single aircraft.
In forty-three seconds, the bomb it has released will have fallen twenty-nine thousand feet and will detonate above the city.
In forty-four seconds, seventy thousand people will be dead.
and the world turns.”  
That excerpt is from playwright Nick Gill’s Sand, a new work that combines fiction, science and history to explore the development of nuclear weapons — and the subsequent devastation they bring. 
And in a limited run — from March 28-30 — Cincinnati audiences can catch it at Over-the-Rhine’s Know Theatre through a solo performance by Andrew J. Hungerford, the theatre’s producing artistic director. 
Described in a press release as a “fractured collection of narratives” that spans a century, it examines the experiences of a dozen women before “building to an inevitable breaking point.” 


Prior, a version of Sand was shown in 2013 at The Royal Court Theatre in London, directed by Vicky Featherstone and performed by Eileen Walsh and Toby Jones.
