About This Book

'Michael Frayn's tremendous play is a piece of history, an intellectual thriller, a psychological investigation and a moral tribunal in full session' Sunday Times

'A profound and haunting meditation on the mysteries of human motivation' Independent

'Frayn has seized on a ral-life historical and scientific mystery. In 1941 the physicist Werner Heisenberg, who formulated the famous Uncertainty Principle about the movement of particles, and was at that time leading the Nazi's nuclear programme, went to visit his old boss and mentor, Niels Bohr, in Copenhagen. What was the purpose of his visit to Nazi-occupied Denmark? What did the two old friends say to each other, particularly bearing in mind that Bohr was both half-Jewish and a Danish patriot?... Frayn argues that just as it is impossible to be certain of the precise location of an electron, so it is impossible to be certain about the workings of the human mind... What is certain is that Frayn makes ideas zing and sing in this play' Daily Telegraph

Margrethe
And
sooner
or
later
there
will
come
a
time
when
all
our
children
are
laid
to
dust,
and
all
our
children’s
children.
Bohr
When
no
more
decisions,
great
or
small,
are
ever
made
again.
When
there’s
no
more
uncertainty,
because
there’s
no
more
knowledge.
Margrethe
And
when
all
our
eyes
are
closed,
when
even
the
ghosts
have
gone,
what
will
be
left
of
our
beloved
world?
Our
ruined
and
dishonoured
and
beloved
world?
Heisenberg
But
in
the
meanwhile,
in
this
most
precious
meanwhile,
there
it
is.
The

Our

Preserved,
just
possibly,
by
that
one
short
moment
in
Copenhagen.
By
some

that
will
never

By
that
final
core
of
uncertainty
at
the
heart
of
things.
