Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle

Wyndham's Theatre

production closed


Simon Stephens, enjoying widespread success with a range of shows during his career, returns to the capital with his latest play Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle. With his recent play – the adaptation of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time – continuing to reap acclaim it is certain that this will be another show in which audiences will leave the theatre with a lot to discuss.

The story focuses on the characters of Georgie and Alex, played by Anne-Marie Duff and Kenneth Cranham in the West End, and the life changing journey they experience. Georgie is waiting on a London train transport and Alex is another stranger, 30 years her senior, amongst those on the platform, but then she takes an unprecedented step that brings them together.

The show has previously been staged on Broadway, with Mary-Louise Parker and Denis Arndt in the same roles and it success mean that a West End version was inevitable. But then this success was expected, considering the previous work of Stephens, as he has been responsible for a range of successful original plays and adaptations, from Punk Rock and Harper Regan to Birdland and Pornography, amongst others.

As it now plays in the capital with some recognisable faces in the lead roles we can expect a lot of attention for Stephen’s latest show, ensuring it becomes a show to make an impression on both sides of the Atlantic.

Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle, which will be directed by the acclaimed Marianne Elliot, runs at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End from 2017.
