1957. Barely a decade after the first use of atomic bombs, the world is divided and fearful of the real threat of nuclear weaponry. In an effort to understand the devastating effects of radiation, leading scientists and academics—world-renowned “Thinkers”—are invited to a conference in the small town of Pugwash, Nova Scotia.

Two local children, Conni and Jamie, take interest in some of the Thinkers, who are humbled by their innocent welcome. But a spy disguised as a reporter has conned Jamie for information to use against the Thinkers, putting the entire conference—and the town of Pugwash—at risk.

Pugwash premiered in the year of the annual conference’s sixtieth anniversary. Thiessen had attended one himself in 2012.

The conference was born out of a manifesto written by Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell in 1955.

Vern Thiessen is one of Canada’s most produced playwrights. His work has been seen across Canada, the United States, Europe, and Asia. He has been produced off-Broadway five times. Vern is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Dora Mavor Moore and Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Awards for Outstanding New Play, the Carol Bolt Award, the Gwen Pharis Ringwood Award, the City of Edmonton Arts Achievement Award, the University of Alberta Alumni Award of Excellence, and the Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama, Canada’s highest honour for a playwright.


“It's an intelligent and thoughtful play that is relevant in many ways to today's political climate, while shedding light on an intriguing local story.”

- Michael Lake, The Coast
