Core Friday this week was a play called “Copenhagen.” This play consisted of three cast members, Werner Heisenberg, Margrethe Bohr, and Niels Bohr. In this play, these three characters’ spirits are meeting after their death to discuss why Heisenberg had come to Copenhagen. During most of this play, they were debating and rejecting theories of why he had come.

This play was a bit hard to follow since the characters would switch from being alive and dead. In addition, i feel like the audience should have had more background information about the play before it had began. I believe that if i had a better understanding of Heisenberg’s and Bohr’s past, i would have been able to follow this play more. What did you think about the play? Were you able to follow along?
