In this uncertain world, who can predict what brings people together? When two strangers meet by chance amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, their lives are changed forever. Multi-award-winning British playwright Simon Stephens’ play explores the uncertain and oDen comical sparring match that is human connection. Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle received its premiere at Wyndham’s Theatre, London, on 9th October 2017 starring Annie-Marie Duff and Kenneth Cranham as Georgie and Alex.
- Georgie Burns is forty-two years old. She is from New Jersey.
- Alex Priest is seventy-five years old. He is a London Butcher.
The play is set in present–day London. The age of the characters is a guide only, but the age-gap is crucial to the play. Casting will depend on how well the actors audition and look together. The rehearsal process for this play will involve a considerable amount of character development workshopping as well as the traditional blocking and line-running procedure.
