“Wondrously stealthy . . . Resonates in your mind long after it’s over” 
The New York Times 

“Insightful, unforgettable” 
Enterntainment Weekly

In a bustling London train station, free-spirited American Georgie spots mid-70s British butcher Alex, kisses him on the neck, and sets his world reeling. When she turns up in his shop a few days later, he is suspicious. Is she honestly attracted to him or is there a longer con game in the cards? As Alex is drawn into Georgie’s anarchic world, his conventional life becomes chaotic, uncertain, and undeniably richer.

In this “vibrant and emotionally charged” (The New York Times) new play, Tony Award–winning playwright Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) crafts an unexpected comedy that rethinks the polar magnetism of opposites attracting. With its perfect collision of strangers and strangeness, Heisenberg is an electric hit from one of theater’s most original voices.
