A musical love story filled with comedy and drama, Atomic Warriors examines the hilarious consequences of using nuclear power. You will laugh, cry and sing along as we see if love can grow between a no-nukes activist and a man who doesn’t share her conviction. Will their relationship work out or will it end in a meltdown?
Atomic Warriors is a folk musical, written and performed by Re-Actors Inc., a troupe from Newfoundland, Canada who have been studying in Harlow, Essex for three months. The show will be performed in the UK and Canada.
Inspired by the Mummers Troupe, Atomic Warriors follows in a long Newfoundland tradition of using comedy and music to confront contemporary political issues relevant to our province. Uranium mining is back on the table in Labrador and digging could be inevitable without your help. Did you know that the uranium for the bomb dropped on Hiroshima came from a Canadian mine? This play is being presented internationally and back home in St. John's to raise awareness of this issue. Hopefully the meltdown in Fukushima will be a wake-up call to the dangers of nuclear power. All proceeds from the show will go to MUN Oxfam.
