The Tony Award-winning Copenhagen is an explosive re-imagining of the mysterious wartime meeting between two scientists to discuss the atomic bomb.

It is 1941. Nations race to perfect The Bomb, and two Nobel Laureates meet in occupied Denmark for a conversation that will change the course of history. German physicist Werner Heisenberg and his Danish counterpart, Niels Bohr, had revolutionized atomic science in the 1920s, but now they were on opposite sides of a world war.

Critically-acclaimed since its premiere, Michael Frayn's riveting drama puts you in the heart of one of the greatest moral dilemmas of the 20th century.
