One of the most celebrated new plays of the last decade, Copenhagen is a powerful drama that explores an enduring mystery of modern scientific history. In 1941, German physicist Werner Heisenberg made a mysterious trip to Copenhagen for a meeting with his Danish mentor, Niels Bohr. What was said during their meeting is unknown, but the two friends never spoke again. Written by Michael Frayn this Tony Award-winning play dares to imagine their meeting – the discussions of friendship, developing an atomic bomb and the ultimate moral responsibility of scientific discovery.
