Copenhagen is a fascinating and intriguing play, based on the historical event of Werner Heisenberg's visit to Niels Bohr in Copenhagen in 1941. Having seen the play in London and Los Angeles, I bought the script so I could examine the intricacies of the story. It helps to have had some exposure to concepts of nuclear physics, but the play is more about personal integrity, relationships and how time tends to distort memory. It's a challenging but rewarding read!
