In 1941, German physicist Werner Heisenberg went to Copenhagen to see his Danish counterpart, Niels Bohr. Together they had revolutionized atomic science in the 1920s, and both were Nobel Prize winners, but now they were on opposite sides of a world war. In this incisive drama the two men meet in a situation fraught with danger in hopes of discovering why we do what we do.
“Some questions remain long after their owners have died. Lingering like ghosts. Looking for the answers they never found in life.”
"The word 'tremendous' is often used but seldom deserved. In this case it is. Copenhagen is an intellectual and theatrical tour de force." - London Times
"Gripping. A brilliant play." - London Guardian,
Winner of 5 awards for Best Play including the Evening Standard, New York Drama Critics’ Circle, Tony Award and Prix Moliere
