That moment you’ll never forget. How well do you remember it? Why did you take that important trip? Who was at that red-letter dinner? We hold our memories and motives as handfuls of sand, ready to slip away and be lost. In 1941 German nuclear scientist Werner Heisenberg visited his mentor Niels Bohr in occupied Copenhagen, and history was made. But exactly what did they say, and why, these men heading into a world of holocaust and atomic bombs?
Michael Frayn’s Pulitizer-prize willing “Copenhagen” will be performed 7:00 pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from April 12 through 21, Physics Lecture Hall 102 in the James Fletcher Building at the University of Utah (on the corner of 1400 East and 100 South, just north of President’s Circle).
