Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Georgie spots Alex, a much older man, and plants a kiss on the back of 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.

“On its surface, a satisfyingly life-affirming mating dance between two people who are so utterly dissimilar that of course they are made for each other. But if you choose to tune into the quieter frequencies... a probing work that considers the multiplicity of alternatives that could shape our lives at every moment.” ~ NY Times

HEISENBERG is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York. HEISENBERG was originally commissioned by the Manhattan Theatre Club, (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director; Barry Grove, Executive Producer) and received its world premiere there on May 19, 2015.
