About the show

This work by Métis playwright Marie Clements traces the journey of uranium from the mines of the Northwest Territories, through Ontario's refineries, to the Manhattan Project lab in New Mexico and finally in the form of the atomic bomb that struck Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. In doing so, it draws a parallel with the harmful effects of uranium on human lives, even before the bombs were created.
