In wartime 1941, German atomic physicist Werner Heisenberg travels to Nazi-occupied Copenhagen to see his old friend and mentor, renowned Danish physicist Niels Bohr. Side by side, almost as father and son, they had revolutionized nuclear science in the 1920s, but have since been pulled apart as they find themselves on opposite sides of a World War. Winner of three Tony Awards, including Best Play, Copenhagen explores the powerful yet uncertain bonds of country, conscience, and love in a world whose very core is at risk of being torn apart.
