About the show

Tony and Olivier Award-winning director Marianne Elliot joins forces with prolific producer Chris Harper to present the first production from their innovative new theatre company, Elliot & Harper Productions. Anne-Marie Duff and Kenneth Cranham star in Simon Stephens’ thrilling play Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle for limited performances at Wyndham’s Theatre.

In a world where everything is unpredictable, Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle examines what brings people together. When two strangers are thrown together by chance in the middle of a crowded London station, their lives forcibly change forever. A hugely surprising, touching and life-affirming play, the production sees the creative team behind the ever-successful The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time reunite.

Last seen in New York in 2015, garnering rave reviews from critics, the Wyndham’s Theatre run marks the UK premiere of Stephens’ play. Combining love, romance and physics, the play sees how our perceptions of people alter once we truly get to know them.

Acclaimed actress Anne-Marie Duff stars, having most recently appeared in the National Theatre’s Common. Best known for her National Theatre work, which includes Strange Interlude and Husbands & Sons, Duff has extensive screen credits such as Nowhere Boy, Before I Go to Sleep and Suffragette.

Olivier Award-winning actor Kenneth Cranham earned praise for his performance in Florian Zeller’s The Father, and is well-known for his extensive screen appearances in Maleficent, Made in Dagenham, The Legend of Hercules and more.

Full of theatrical surprise, the soaring Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle plays limited performances at the West End’s Wyndham’s Theatre, from October 3rd 2017 to January 6th 2017. Reuniting Marianne Elliot and Simon Stephens, the production is set to resonate long after it’s been seen!

Who Should See It?

Fans of Simon Stephens’ previous work will find similar theatrical surprises here. Those who enjoyed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will definitely enjoy this production, as will those who enjoyed Nick Payne’s Constellations.
