Trinity by Afterculture Theatre presented by the Lexington Art League

Trinity is a site-specific, audience-immersive theatrical experience that tells the story of Dr. Oppenheimer, his atomic bomb, and the three great women in his life. At 5:29AM on July 16th, 1945 the world’s first successful test detonation of an atomic bomb, codenamed “Trinity,” turned the New Mexican desert sand into glass. This is our account of what happened on the evening of July 16th. Come explore the troubled mind that led us into the atomic age.

In collaboration with Kentucky Workers League, Afterculture Theatre facilitated an introductory theatre camp for middle and high school students. This was a fun opportunity for young people in Cardinal Valley, an underserved part of Lexington, to engage with the performing arts and develop the confidence to tell their own stories. Thanks to the support of Kentucky Workers League we were able to offer this program free of charge!
