This play, Copenhagen, is one of the events that Templeton students may attend as part of the Benoliel Arts and Culture Series.
“Copenhagen examines a fascinating mystery: why did German physicist Werner Heisenberg visit his old mentor and Danish counterpart Niels Bohr in 1941 while their countries were at war? Was he looking for clues to atomic secrets, seeking absolution, or simply saying goodbye to an old friend? As the characters wrestle with their memories and motives, what becomes clear is the ultimate unknowability of why we do what we do. Perhaps the greatest play ever written about science, Michael Frayn’s drama puts us in the heart of the greatest moral dilemma of the 20th century.”
