1942.  On an abandoned squash court, a dazzling scientific experiment takes place that three years later will destroy a city and change the world forever.  Two actors, one British, one Japanese, explore the events surrounding the catastrophic ‘mistake’ that launched our nuclear age.

A man with a skull with a Japanese woman looking onInterweaving the stories of a young woman in war-time Hiroshima, a brilliant Hungarian scientist, and the American pilot who flew the plane that dropped the bomb, THE MISTAKE is a powerful drama that confronts the dangers that arise when humans dare to unlock the awesome power of nature.
