By Michael Frayn


In the autumn of 1941, at a critical point in the second world war, German physicist Werner Heisenberg paid a strange visit to his Danish counterpart, Niels Bohr. To this day, speculation has raged over precisely what they discussed. For these two former friends were among a handful of scientists around the globe who could unlock the secret of nuclear warfare.

In probing the mystery of this meeting, Michael Frayn has created an extraordinary play – gripping, haunting, exhilarating and moving – which asks how we can ever know why we do what we do.
