Rehearsals for Elliott & Harper Productions’ inaugural production, Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle by Simon Stephens began this week. Directed by the Olivier and Tony award-winning Marianne Elliott, it runs at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London from 3 October 2017 to 6 January 2018, with a press night on Monday 9 October 2017. Marianne’s many credits include the award-winning productions of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, War Horse and most recently the National Theatre’s production of Angels in America, which will transfer to Broadway next year, as a co-production with Elliott & Harper.
Tony and Olivier-Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens’ Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle is a surprising and life-affirming new play inspired by one of the most famous ideas in quantum physics, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle and stars Anne-Marie Duff as Georgie and Kenneth Cranham as Alex.
In this uncertain world, who can predict what brings people together? When two strangers meet by chance amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, their lives are changed forever.
The creative team for Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle also includes many of the team Elliott worked with on her record- breaking production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time including designer Bunny Christie, lighting designer Paule Constable, movement director Steven Hoggett and sound designer Ian Dickinson. The play will also feature music from acclaimed pianist and composer Nils Frahm.
Photographs by Alex Rumford include: director Marianne Elliott, producer, Chris Harper, designer Bunny Christie, playwright Simon Stephens and cast members, Anne-Marie Duff and Kenneth Cranham.
