Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Priniciple - 900x600/servlet/file/store5/item395713/version1/fileservice770/395713_770_preview.jpg

Tony and Olivier-Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens’ Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle is a surprising and life-affirming new two-hander starring Anne-Marie Duff and Kenneth Cranham.

In this uncertain world, who can predict what brings people together? When two strangers meet by chance amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, their lives are changed forever.

The Uncertainty Principle is one of the most famous ideas in physics. First articulated in 1927 by German physicist Werner Heisenberg, it states that it is impossible to know simultaneously the exact position and momentum of a particle - the more exactly the position is determined, the less known the momentum, and vice-versa.

Reuniting much of the creative team behind the National Theatre’s hugely successful productions of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse, Olivier and Tony Award-winning director Marianne Elliott leads the first production of her and producer Chris Harper’s newly formed theatre company, Elliott & Harper Productions.
