Directed by Richard Corley

A Madison Premiere.

Winner of three Tony Awards, including best play, Copenhagen is a haunting story of friendship and danger. In 1941, the German physicist Werner Heisenberg made a strange trip to Copenhagen to see his Danish counterpart, Niels Bohr. They were old friends and close colleagues, and they had revolutionized atomic physics in the 1920s. But now the two men were on opposite sides in a world war. Did Heisenberg ask Bohr about joining the German war effort? Or did he want to enlist Bohr's help in derailing Hitler's efforts to develop nuclear weapons? In Michael Frayn's tantalizing play, Heisenberg meets Bohr and his wife Margrethe once again to look for the answers to questions that profoundly affected 20th century world history.
