Heisenberg

Description

Co-Production from Rubicon Theatre and Laguna Playhouse

Directed by KATHARINE FARMER

In a bustling London train station free-spirited American Georgie unexpectedly plants a kiss on the neck of mid-70s British butcher Alex as he sits on a bench at St Pancras Station. And when she turns up in his shop a few days later, she sets the suspicious man’s world reeling. As Alex is drawn into Georgie’s anarchic world, his conventional life becomes chaotic, uncertain, and undeniably richer. Peeling away the many layers of everyday relationships with subtle humor and quiet poeticism, Heisenberg brings to poignant theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection. Written by Tony Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) and starring Faline England (Valentine’s Day) and Joe Spano (Hill Street Blues and NCIS).
