“Is this the strangest thing that two people have ever done in the history of the world?”
Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Georgie spots Alex, a much older man, and plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game. Directed by Drama Desk Award winner Mark Brokaw (The Lyons, How I Learned to Drive), HEISENBERG brings to blazing, theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection.
Internationally renowned for THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME, visionary playwright Simon Stephens returns to the New York stage with this sharply original world premiere starring Denis Arndt (The Night Alive, Basic Instinct) and Tony® and Emmy® winner Mary-Louise Parker (Proof, “Weeds”).
Mary-Louise Parker will return to the New York stage in “Heisenberg,” the world premiere of a new play by Simon Stephens (“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”) at Manhattan Theater Club. The production reunites Parker with MTC, where she starred in “Proof” and won a Tony for that production’s Broadway transfer. In “Heisenberg” she’ll co-star with Kenneth Welsh in a production directed by Mark Brokaw (“Cinderella,” “How I Learned to Drive”) and playing in MTC’s smallest venue, the Studio at Stage II.
Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of Heisenberg, the new play by two-time Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Punk Rock), directed by Drama Desk Award winner Mark Brokaw (The Lyons, How I Learned to Drive) starring Denis Arndt (The Night Alive at Geffen Playhouse, "The Practice") and Tony and Emmy Award winner Mary-Louise Parker (Proof, "Weeds") begins rehearsals Thursday.
