What: Play Reading: Copenhagen at Seaside Rep
When: Wednesday, November 7, 2012
Time: 7:30 pm

Seaside Repertory Theatre presents a play reading of Michael Frayn's Copenhagen.

The spirits of Werner Heisenberg, Niels Bohr and Bohr’s wife Margrethe, meet after their deaths to attempt to answer the question, which Margrethe poses in the first line of the play, “Why did he come to Copenhagen?”

Heisenberg – “No one understands my trip to Copenhagen. Time and time again I’ve explained it; to Bohr himself, and Margrethe; to interrogators and intelligence officers; to journalists and historians. The more I’ve explained, the deeper the uncertainty has become. Well, I shall be happy to make one more attempt.”

Along the way, Heisenberg and Bohr “draft” several versions of their 1941 exchange, arguing about the ramifications of each potential version of their meeting and the motives behind it. They discuss the idea of nuclear power and its control, the rationale behind building or not building an atomic bomb, the uncertainty of the past and the inevitability of the future as embodiments of themselves acting as particles drifting through the atom that is Copenhagen.
