About This Show

Winner of the prestigious Evening Standard (London) Award for Best Play (1998) and the 2000 Tony Award® for Best Play, Michael Frayn’s Copenhagen is inspired by actual events that have intrigued and baffled historians for more than 50 years?a 1941 meeting between two brilliant physicists, longtime friends whose work together had opened the way to the atom, but who were now on opposite sides of World War II. German physicist Werner Heisenberg made a covert trip at great risk to see his Danish counterpart Niels Bohr and his wife Margrethe in Copenhagen. Why did Heisenberg go to Denmark, and what did the two men say to each other? What happened at this pivotal meeting that was a defining moment of the modern nuclear age?
