So begins Michael Frayn’s Copenhagen, the enigmatic thriller that details the unravelling bond between Nobel Laureates Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg – once great friends who had revolutionized atomic physics in the 1920s. Years later, the world has changed, and the two find themselves on opposite sides of a catastrophic world war.
Copenhagen asks the purpose of Heisenberg’s clandestine trip to see Niels and Margrethe Bohr in 1941. Was it to rekindle their broken friendship or were Heisenberg’s motives more sinister? This riveting play questions what is true and what is certain, while revealing why things must be the way they are.
