One of the 20th Century's defining moments.  If it had gone differently, the Nazis might have built the bomb.  Michael Frayn's compelling new play re-creates what might have happened when, at the onset of World War II, Werner Heisenberg, head of the Nazi atomic programme, pays a visit to his equally famous counterpart, Neils Bohr.  Was peace pr annihilation behind the question posed that night in Copenhagen?  A profound meditation on the endless possibilities of the collision of human particles.  If you're interested in one of the more important Face-offs of the past 60 years, visit COPENHAGEN.
