For the first of his Edinburgh Fringe reviews, Ginger Dave went for some ‘proper’ theatre….
This was a play about a famous meeting between two of the worlds greatest physicists; Heisenberg and Bohr. They controversially met during the second world war when both were on opposite sides, and just what they said to each other has been the subject of much speculation ever since. This play uses that meeting as the springboard for the narrative and cleverly explores the many possibilties of what could have been said at this meeting. Quantum physics becomes a counterpoint to the historical narrative, exemplifying the implicate and explicate. The play serves as an exploration into the ethical issues raised by nuclear physics and also manages to tell a fascinating story. Not one for everybody perhaps, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
