Copenhagen

Copenhagen Poster

Copenhagen is an extraordinary Tony Award-winning play that explores and finds connections between history, science, ethical dilemmas, and human relationships.

Re-imagining a controversial and crucial meeting between physicist Niels Bohr and his former colleague Werner Heisenberg in Copenhagen in 1941, Michael Frayn’s play cleverly shows theoretical physics to be plainly understood, while human behavior is nearly impossible to know.

Nobel laureates Bohr and Heisenberg are giants in the scientific world, colleagues nearly as close as father and son, but the circumstances of World War II have driven them apart. At great risk to himself and his former colleague, Heisenberg goes to visit Niels and Margrethe Bohr in German-occupied Denmark, but to what end? What starts as a warm and cordial meeting quickly falls apart, and the implications of this meeting have been debated ever since, with repercussions both personal and global. The great minds who have worked so closely together find themselves squaring off at a crossroads of science, morality, emotion and atomic warfare.
