Dramatic reading of “Copenhagen” – April 8

Wheaton Drama to give dramatic reading of “Copenhagen” – April 8

At 8 p.m. on Friday, April 8, in One West, Wheaton Drama will perform a reading of “Copenhagen,” a play about physics and physicists, quantum mechanics and atomic weapons. The play, written by Michael Frayn, tells the story of Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg who met in 1941 when Heisenberg was in Nazi Germany and Bohr (who was Jewish) was in Nazi-occupied Denmark. Was Heisenberg trying to build an atom bomb for Hitler? Why did he visit Bohr?
