Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle

From Tony and Olivier Award-winning director Marianne Elliott and playwright Simon Stephens comes a new play starring the critically acclaimed Anne-Marie Duff and Kenneth Cranham.

Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle features a chance meeting between two strangers in a crowded London train station that changes their live forever. Surprising and life-affirming, it ponders the question: what brings people together in this uncertain world?

What Is Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle about?

The play is about a 45 year old woman, Georgie, who spots a much older man in the hustle and bustle of London train station and decides to plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts these two people into a fascinating and life-changing game. 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 joins director Marianne Elliott and producer Chris Harper in the making of this new play. 

Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls Heisenberg, “A soaring, suspenseful, thrilling and wondrous play. Heisenberg resonates in your mind long after it’s over.”

  • Great actors and production, not the best play

    7 January 2018

    The play had a promising premise but I don't think it fully developped any of its motifs. The wonderful production and the acting seemed to imply that the text had more depth than it really had. Still, I very muched enjoyed seeing it. The audience, however, was terrible. I've never heard so much coughing in a theatre in my life. They were coughing over key lines and not only other members of the audience, but also the actors must have been highly annoyed by this. The achievements of AM Duff and K. Cranham are all the more remarkable.

  • Quirky but provoking

    5 January 2018

    For the first fifteen minutes you wonder if the casting went awry and Alex isn’t supposed to look 75 years old - because Georgie is in her mid forties and this is a love story. Moving, beautiful and mad - just like Anne-Marie Duff’s character. Ninety minutes without interval it’s perfectly crafted and a perfect ending.

    One of the most innovative presentations I have ever seen. Anne Marie Duff's performance was a "tour d' Force
