Pugwash

by Vern Thiessen

In July 1957, the world was rife with post-war wounds and nuclear arms race fears. In the midst of all the mounting anxiety, leading scientists and academics, world-renowned ‘thinkers’ were invited to a conference in humble Pugwash, NS, the first conference of its kind to address their role in creating and alleviating these fears. Cumberland County native Cyrus Eaton who had made a fortune living and working in the played a key role in bringing the world to Pugwash, his beloved hometown. Thiessen’s play is a fictional story based on true events that explore the local impact and global legacy of the Pugwash Conferences. A uniquely Canadian story, celebrating a remarkable individual and remarkable place, on the 60th Anniversary of a truly remarkable achievement.
