Topanga Actor’s Company Continues a Strong Season

Topanga Actor’s Company Continues a Strong Season 

Topanga Actors’ Company recently performed a fantastic reader’s theater production of the play Farm Hall at the Topanga Library. The story is a mirror image of Oppenheimer. Six German nuclear physicists/scientists are rounded up in Germany and brought to England after the German armed forces surrendered. The war in the Pacific is still raging and no one wants a nuclear bomb in the hands of the enemy. The men held in England had been working for Germany in the race for the bomb. The conversations among the guests were secretly recorded by the Brits. The six men included three Nobel Prize winners for Physics, including Otto Hahn, the father of nuclear fission. 

This fascinating story is a British work, and TAC has the honor of giving the debut American performance. For those new to the Canyon, TAC is a group of community professionals who present modern plays in reader’s theater form. They are not your grandmother’s reader’s theater, however. The plays are staged and costumed. 

TAC performs at the Topanga Library. Shows are free! You can stay very current with modern theater with a five-minute ride to the library. A second performance is always planned for the Malibu Library, usually the following weekend allowing up to four opportunities to attend. TAC does several shows a year and develops readings for new plays. It is lots of fun to be involved with this wonderful group, so come meet them sometime! 

Bravo to Ben Birmingham, Edward Giron, Mark Irvingsen, Bill Pierce, Andy Spring and Tom Waters for outstanding performances and to Judith Hendra, producer/director extraordinaire! Great show!
