Main Street Theater presents Copenhagen
In 1941, German physicist Werner Heisenberg went to Copenhagen to see his Danish counterpart, Niels Bohr. Together they had revolutionized atomic science in the 1920s, but now they were on opposite sides of a world war. In this incisive yet very human drama, the spirits of Werner Heisenberg, Niels Bohr, and Bohr's wife Margrethe meet after their deaths to attempt to answer the question that Margrethe poses in the first line of the play, "Why did he [Heisenberg] come to Copenhagen?”
Copenhagen is a powerful rumination on why we do what we do as human beings.
