Blood on Their Hands

A new play which dramatizes two wartime massacres, exploring the motivations and emotions of those involved.

This play tells the WW2 stories of Paul Blobel and Robert Oppenheimer. Blobel was a German SS officer and Oppenheimer was an American nuclear scientist.

Starting with their recruitment we follow their different paths through the war years, both climaxing with appalling massacres – one being of Jews in Ukraine and the other being of atom bombs exploded over Japan.

Subsequently, both of the protagonists come before judgmental tribunals for quite different reasons, but they both suffer the consequences: one by being hanged and the other by being politically ostracized before ultimately regaining his prestige.

Finally, the audience is prompted to draw a moral conclusion on the outcomes of these two very different stories.
