From the Daily Utah Chronicle:

Winner of the 1999-2000 Tony Award for Best Play.

"In 1941, Werner Heisenberg, one of [Niels] Bohr’s top students, went to visit him in Copenhagen for a private meeting,
'and what happened at that meeting has been a topic of discussion ever since,' according to director Beth Bruner.
In this play, Bohr and Heisenberg meet in the afterlife and try to work out what exactly they did at that meeting and why they did it."



With a cast of members from the University of Utah community, including pre-med student Jesse Peery as Werner Heisenberg and theatre professor Richard Scharine as Niels Bohr.
