The Winning Side by James Wallert (Workshop)


THE WINNING SIDE explores the hidden history behind America’s 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing, especially that of it’s architect, the former Nazi engineer Wernher von Braun.  Co-commissioned by Epic and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, THE WINNING SIDE tackles difficult questions of political and technological expediency, and what ethical sacrifices America is willing to make to come out on top.

The workshop took place at The Acorn Theatre on January 13, 2018.
