About Operation Epsilon

Operation Epsilon is a true story that unearths a once-classified series of events buried in the archives amidst the chaos of World War II. Book Operation Epsilon tickets at the Southwark Playhouse Elephant on London Theatre.

The Operation Epsilon play follows the journey of Germany’s foremost nuclear scientists, who were held captive in England by the British and American forces.

This production marks the UK premiere of the award-winning play Operation Epsilon, directed by Andy Sandberg, known for producing the Tony Award-winning revival of Hair. The play features an exceptional cast of 11 actors.
