Particular Men

Written by Emmy Award-winning playwright, Loring Mandel, "Particular Men" recalls what might be considered the most significant event not only of the 1940s, but of man's entire history - the introduction of nuclear weaponry. Although fictitious, Mandel's story may bring to mind some of the events that took place at Los Alamos, New Mexico (where the Manhattan Project was carried out from 1943 to 1945)and during subsequent Atomic Energy Commission proceedings concerning questions of "national security." Starring Stacy Keach, "Particular Men," centers around the development of the atomic bomb, examining the moral responsibilities of scientists and the relationship between them and the governments that support their work.

"...Stacy Keach is an actor of commanding presence and his portrayal of the Hamlet-like superscientist was disturbing and provocative." - Variety
