Benedict Cumberbatch, Greta Scacchi and Simon Russell Beale star in Michael Frayn's award-winning play about the controversial 1941 meeting between physicists Bohr and Heisenberg. Copenhagen, Autumn 1941.
The two presiding geniuses of quantum physics, Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg meet for the first time since the breakout of war. Danish physicist Bohr and his wife, Margrethe, live in Nazi-occupied Denmark; their visitor, Heisenberg, is German, the two old friends, now on opposing sides have between them the ability to change the course of history.
Frayn's Tony award-winning play imagines the three characters re-drafting the events of 1941 in an attempt to make sense of them. With Greta Scacchi as Margrethe Bohr, Simon Russell Beale as Niels Bohr and Benedict Cumberbatch as Werner Heisenberg. This new version of Copenhagen is adapted for radio and directed by Emma Harding.

Very deep play well acted and food for thought makes you also ask questions about ethics and what our omissions or actions lead to
"Wonderful piece of Theater"
Wonderful performances that one can hear time and again without losing any interest.
Excellent combination of a scientific subject with touching repercussions for all the characters involved and on a larger scale for all of humanity.
Heisenberg is simply astonishing. His dilemma and life story are incredible.
One starts to listen at the audio book and time freezes.
Frayn has put on paper a masterpiece.
