Reykjavik

6-24_reykjavik_0.jpg

Monday, Doug sits down with author Richard Rhodes, one of the foremost historians on the nuclear age. Rhodes is in town for a reading of his play "Reykjavik." It's about the 1986 summit between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, when Russia and the US began the process of reducing their nuclear arsenals. Rhodes says he was dazzled at the richness of the debate that went on between the two men and writing a play was a chance to reveal what happened behind closed doors. We'll talk about that meeting and its legacy today.

Monday, June 24 at 7:00 p.m., Plan B Theatre Company will offer a script-in-hand reading of Richard Rhodes' "Reykjavik."  Rhodes will be on-hand for a Q&A hosted by KUED Channel 7's Mary Dickson

The event is free, but there are no longer tickets available. There will be a waiting list line at 6:30 for seats unclaimed by 7:00. You must be in the building to be on the list. Visit planbtheatre.org for more information.
