From the playwright who brought you The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Simon Stephens presents Heisenberg. Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Georgie spots Alex, a much older man, and she plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game. Heisenberg brings to blazing, theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection.
Heisenberg played from December 13, 2017 - March 4, 2018 in the Keating Theatre.
This one act play features explicit language, as well as conversations of sexual situations and subjects. It is best suited for mature high school students and above.
