The award-winning play by Frayn speculates on “what may have happened” when two internationally known physicists, Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, met in 1941 to discuss the creation and ultimate use of nuclear energy … for good or for mass destruction.
Now dead, the two men- and Bohrs’ wife- meet in the afterlife to grapple with their earthly friendship and the strains imposed by politics and ethics. In exquisite language, by turns scientific and humanistic, Frayn offers us intellectual discourse and debate about human intentions and moral obligations.
This production will take place in the Acting Studio. Lower level Clet Hall room 101.
