Aspen Fringe presents
By: Simon Stephens
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.
