Heisenberg

By Tony Award® Winning Playwright Simon Stephens

Vibrant and emotionally charged, resonates in your mind long after its over” - New York Times

AFF’s performance will feature Aspen’s own Nikki Boxer and Mike Monroney and will be followed by a post-show talk with the playwright Simon Stephens. Heisenberg originally opened on Broadway in 2016 to great acclaim starring Tony Award® nominees Mary Louise Parker and Denis Arndt.

THE STORY: 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. Simon Stephens, one of theater’s most original voices brings to blazing, theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection. 

HEISENBERG was originally commissioned by the Manhattan Theatre Club, [Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director; Barry Grove, Executive Producer] and received its world premiere there 5.19.2015

HEISENBERG: The Uncertainty Principal

Conceived by the German Physicist Wener Heisenberg in 1927, it states that the position and the velocity (direction and speed) of an object cannot BOTH be measured exactly, at the same time, even in theory. The very concepts of exact position and exact velocity together, in fact, have no meaning in nature. Quite simply, if you know where something is, you can't know where it's going, and if you know where it's going, you can't know where it is.
