Directed by Tony winner Andy Sandberg, the cast will feature Tony Award winner Michael Cerveris (Sweeney Todd, Assassins, In the Next Room), Drama Desk Award nominee Alexander Gemignani (Les Miserables, Sweeney Todd, Assassins), Michael Izquierdo (New Jerusalem), Drama Desk Award winner Byron Jennings (The Merchant of Venice, Sight Unseen), Ian Kahn (Enron, Still Life), Greg Keller (Smudge), Jay Klaitz (Lend Me a Tenor, Rock of Ages), Drama Desk Award winner Lorenzo Pisoni (Equus, Humor Abuse), stage and screen star James Rebhorn (Twelve Angry Men, “Independence Day”), Brian Russell (The Farnsworth Invention) and Kenneth Tigar (Translations).

Based on the transcripts from Operation Epsilon at Farm Hall, 1945, the play, according to press notes, "is the true story of ten German nuclear scientists, including two Nobel Prize winning physicists, who were interned at Farm Hall, England, by the British and American authorities just after the fall of Germany in World War II. All the rooms in Farm Hall were under surveillance and all conversations recorded on wax disc. These conversations were later transcribed, translated, and sent to the military authorities in Washington and London. Much of that material appears in this play interwoven with scenes that have been imagined within the documented events."
