Burning Coal Theatre Company is proud to announce its production of Michael Frayn’s COPENHAGEN, directed by Jerome Davis.

COPENHAGEN is a three-person play that provides a fictional account of the meeting between physicists Werner Heisenberg and Niels Bohr at Bohr’s home in Copenhagen in 1941 during the throes of World War II. Heisenberg and Bohr, accompanied by Bohr’s wife Margrethe, revisit their personal and professional entanglements throughout decades of war, turmoil and scientific advancement. The trio reenacts and simultaneously analyzes their infamous gathering, weaving in and out of various points in their shared past. For Heisenberg and Bohr, the question will always remain: what will come of the decisions we made?
