The Play’s the Thing: COPENHAGEN 

January 22, 2:00 p.m.
DCJCC Theatre J 
1529 16th St NW, Washington DC 20036

This Tony Award-winning play, written by Michael Frayn,  is about the historic meeting in 1941 between the German physicist Werner Heisenberg and his Danish counterpart, Niels Bohr has intrigued and divided historians and scientists ever since. Old friends and colleagues, they find themselves on opposite sides in a world war and embroiled in a race to create the atom bomb. This play is a classic of modern drama—a meditation on friendship and moral responsibility, intellectually dazzling, and deeply moving that journeys through the realm of science and beyond.
