About the show

After a triumphant Broadway run, Simon Stephens (writer of the Olivier & Tony Award-winning The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) brings his sizzling two-hander Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle to the Wyndham’s Theatre for its UK premiere - with tickets available from 3 October 2017 to 6 January 2018.

Reactive elements come in pairs with this production, which sees director Marianne Elliott team up with producer Chris Harper to form their new company Elliott & Harper Productions – adding the performative talents of Olivier Award-winner Kenneth Cranham and two-time Olivier nominee Anne-Marie Duff to the exciting chemical concoction.

Mirroring the coincidental collision of two random particles, Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle tells the story of a chance encounter between two strangers upon a crowded London tube platform.

These two volatile molecules take the form of Alex Priest (Cranham), an Irish-born butcher on the cusp of retirement, and Georgie Burns (Duff) a chaotic American-born swindler on the lookout for her next mark. The two embark on an unexpected journey that may alter the course of each of their lives forever.

Heisenberg comes to us with the support of the creative team behind The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, plus the award-winning designer Bunny Christie (Red Barn/People, Places Things at the National Theatre).

This explosive fusion makes Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle an unmissable, theatric experiment not to be missed, so get your tickets now.

Great actors but this show sucked. Good thing it was only one act. The set was innovative, but thats about as good as it gets.

This play bears very little relationship to the scientific principle after which it's named, although that does get a nod. Just a nod.... More
