Reader's Theater Presents Copenhagen by Michael Frayn

On Thursday, October 1 at 7:00 pm. in The Hubbard Room at Russell Library, 123 Broad Street, Middletown, Reader's Theater will present their first play of this season, Copenhagen, written by Michael Frayn. The play is set in an undisclosed location, with no mention of sets, props, costume, or scenic design. In fact, the play does not offer a single stage direction – leaving the action completely up to the director. The audience learns early on that all three characters (Heisenberg, Bohr, and Bohr’s wife Margrethe) have been dead for years. With their lives now over, their spirits turn to the past to try to make sense of the 1941 meeting. During their discussion, the talkative spirits touch upon other moments in their lives – skiing trips and boating accidents, laboratory experiments and long walks with friends. Reader’s Theater is live drama enacted by professional actors, directed by Richard B. Kamins.
No registration; Reader’s Theater productions are funded by The Friends of the Russell Library.
