OPERATION EPSILON A satisfyingly taut and well-acted production of
Alan Brody’s fine, historically based new drama about German nuclear scientists held captive at the end of World War II in a British country house, where they confront — and evade — their moral responsibility. Directed by Andy Sandberg, with standout performances by Will Lyman, Diego Arciniegas, Ken Baltin,
and Robert D. Murphy. Pictured (from left): Owen Doyle, Lyman, and Baltin. Through April 28. Nora Theatre Company.
