Michael Frayn's play Copenhagen tells the story of renowned physicist Werner Heisenberg, who made a strange trip to Copenhagen in 1941 to see his old colleague and friend Niels Bohr and his wife, Margrethe. The meeting was fraught with danger and embarrassment, and ended in disaster. No one really knows what happened in that meeting, and the two colleagues never spoke again. Frayn presents a compelling and powerful speculation as to what could have driven such a wedge between the two, at the same time creating a profound statement on the conflict between personal relationships and higher loyalties, such as duty to one's country. Winner of the 2000 Tony Award for Best New Play, Copenhagen is a haunting exploration of history, science and the human spirit.

    Great play. Theoretical physics issues carried over into the human ones of the play and, as in human ones, retained basic ambiguities. Thought provoking and challenging, especially for a layman.
    Fine acting.
