'Michael Frayn's tremendous play is a piece of history, an
intellectual thriller, a psychological investigation and a moral
tribunal in full session' Sunday Times 'A profound and haunting
meditation on the mysteries of human motivation' Independent 'Frayn
has seized on a ral-life historical and scientific mystery. In 1941
the physicist Werner Heisenberg, who formulated the famous
Uncertainty Principle about the movement of particles, and was at
that time leading the Nazi's nuclear programme, went to visit his
old boss and mentor, Niels Bohr, in Copenhagen. What was the
purpose of his visit to Nazi-occupied Denmark? What did the two old
friends say to each other, particularly bearing in mind that Bohr
was both half-Jewish and a Danish patriot?... Frayn argues that
just as it is impossible to be certain of the precise location of
an electron, so it is impossible to be certain about the workings
of the human mind... What is certain is that Frayn makes ideas zing
and sing in this play' Daily Telegraph
