U-238

Millward, Frank [Composer] (2006) U-238. (music).

Abstract

U-238 (Depleted uranium) is a dangerous toxic heavy metal, which has been used in huge quantities by armies since the first Gulf War, despite numerous independent studies warning of its toxic-radioactive effects. Paolini’s U-238 is a controversial monologue about depleted uranium and its dangerous consequences for the health of soldiers and civilians. Theatralia’s interactive and experimental adaptation breaks the boundaries between entertainment and information, theatre and journalistic enquiry.
