Michael Frayn’s Copenhagen: Indra’s Net Theater Company discussion at Berkeley Public Library

May 08, 2013

Contact:  Debbie Carton 510-981-6139



Berkeley Public Library welcomes our town’s new theater company.  Indra’s Net Theater focuses on plays about science and its philosophical and ethical implications.  Their first production is Michael Frayn’s Tony award-winning Copenhagen. On Tuesday, May 14, director Bruce Coughran will join us to discuss the play and the production, in a free program at 6:30 p.m. in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room. Members from the Berkeley Public Library’s Playreaders group will read several scenes aloud. In 1941, Danish physicist Niels Bohr and his German protégé Werner Heisenberg met in occupied Denmark.  Heisenberg was working on his country’s project to explore nuclear fission.  Through this tense meeting of old friends, the play explores the vagaries of human communication.  What can be known?  And what will always be uncertain? COPENHAGEN is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Indra's Net Theater is a fiscally sponsored project of fractured atlas.  For more information about Copenhagen and Indra’s Net Theater, visit www.indrasnettheater.com. This free event is sponsored by the Friends of the Library (www.berkeleylibraryfriends.org).  For more information, call 510-981-6139 or visit www.berkeleypubliclibrary.org.
