In 1941, Niels Bohr, a Danish and half-Jewish scientist renowned worldwide as the 'father of quantum physics,' has seen his country come under the control of Nazi Germany. As he and his wife Margrethe take refuge within the wiretapped walls of their Copenhagen home, they receive an unexpected visitor: Werner Heisenberg, Bohr's former student and a close friend, now working in the service of the Nazis. The two men take a walk. By the time they return, their relationship is forever altered, and the era of atomic warfare has drawn nearer.
This award-winning play explores a mystery that has puzzled scientists and historians for decades: What did Bohr and Heisenberg discuss during their secret meeting? And how did this conversation affect the outcome of the Second World War?
Copenhagen has riveted audiences around the world with its story of a friendship placed on the altar of war and conflicting loyalties. A mystery and a thriller, this play will take your heart and mind on an invigorating ride.
