World premiere play by Simon Stephens
Directed by Mark Brokaw
with Denis Arndt & Mary-Louise Parker
“Is this the strangest thing that two people have ever done in the history of the world?”
Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Georgie spots Alex, a much older man, and plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game. Directed by Drama Desk Award winner Mark Brokaw (The Lyons, How I Learned to Drive), 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 returns to the New York stage with this sharply original world premiere starring Denis Arndt (The Night Alive, Basic Instinct) and Tony® and Emmy® winner Mary-Louise Parker (Proof, “Weeds”). Heisenberg was commissioned by Manhattan Theatre Club.
