Staged Reading - Copenhagen

By Michael Frayn

A staged Reading

Directed by Bruce Coughran,

Assisted by Alecks Rundell

Tuesday - August 14, 2012 8 p.m.


The Tony-Award winning COPENHAGEN (1998) represents the later stage of Frayn's career, and explores the historic meeting between the physicists Werner Heisenberg and Niels Bohr (accompanied by his wife Margrethe Bohr) in Copenhagen in 1941.

In the meeting, the two physicists dance around the possibilities of nuclear weapons, their use, the moral consequences, and what each side knows.  The play is of intense interest both for its historical content and for its experimental style, written as a series of flashbacks and re-flashbacks.  Directed by Bruce Coughran (Anouilh's Antigone)  assisted by Alecks Rundell (Journey of Light).  COPENHAGEN plays Tuesday August 14th at 8 p.m.
