About HEISENBERG: 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 Bari Newport, Heisenberg brings to theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is the human connection.
Internationally renowned for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, visionary playwright Simon Stephens returns to the stage with this sharply original production starring South Florida’s own Margery Lowe and Colin McPhillamy (most recently in Broadway’s Hangmen).
