Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle
From Tony and Olivier Award-winning director Marianne Elliott and playwright Simon Stephens comes a new play starring the critically acclaimed Anne-Marie Duff and Kenneth Cranham.
Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle features a chance meeting between two strangers in a crowded London train station that changes their live forever. Surprising and life-affirming, it ponders the question: what brings people together in this uncertain world?
What Is Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle about?
The play is about a 45 year old woman, Georgie, who spots a much older man in the hustle and bustle of London train station and decides to plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts these two people into a fascinating and life-changing game. Heisenberg brings to blazing, theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection.
Internationally renowned for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, visionary playwright Simon Stephens joins director Marianne Elliott and producer Chris Harper in the making of this new play.
Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls Heisenberg, “A soaring, suspenseful, thrilling and wondrous play. Heisenberg resonates in your mind long after it’s over.”

fortunately if necessary given the choice between good acting and good play I will always chose the acting . so I was not disappointed. yet again we are lucky to be living through an era of brilliant set designers. I realise what the author was trying to say but if the play could have had a 4 letter title it would be more suitable for the number of times the increasingly and unnecessary use of another 4 letter word is in use all over London theatre

It really took me by surprise with its depth and intimacy, and the set construction alongside the music was phenomenal. It was a really touching and beautiful play, I only wish I could have found out more about what would happen to the characters afterwards.

I thought this a dreadful play. Banal, uninteresting and with only a tangential reference to Heisenberg which is what drew me in. Kenneth Cranham looked ill at ease throughout, whcih may have been why he fluffed lines. But his part was awful- and monosyllabic for the most part. Anne Marie Duff made the best she could but the play was so dull and inconsequential that this was hard to do. Many of the set changes seemed irrelevant and the play constructed around these rather than the other way around. My advice- don't go!
