The Listening Place, Readers Theatre will present COPENHAGEN by Michael Frayn, directed by Maryann Rousseau, produced by Linda Hancock, featuring John Newkirk, Susan Keenan, Richard Boynton.

“The Tony Award-winning play (2001) that soars at the intersection of science and art, COPENHAGEN is an explosive reimagining of the mysterious wartime meeting between two Nobel laureates to discuss the atomic bomb. In 1941, the German physicist Werner Heisenberg made a strange trip to Copenhagen to see his Danish counterpart, Neils Bohr. They were old friends and close colleagues who had revolutionized atomic physics in the 1920s. But now, the world had changed, and the two men were on opposite sides in a world war. Why Heisenberg went to Copenhagen and what he wanted to say to Bohr are questions that have exercised historians ever since. COPENHAGEN has been hailed as “a piece of history, an intellectual thriller, a psychological investigation and a moral tribune in full session.”
