West End be prepared: there’s a new theatrical tour de force on the way in the form of Elliott & Harper Productions, the newly-formed theatre company set to reunite a number of the creatives behind National Theatre smash-hits The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time and War Horse this Autumn.
Their first production, Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle, begins previews at Wyndham’s Theatre on Tuesday 3 October, centering on the uncertainties in everyday life which bring us together – and the potential for life-affirming change as a result.
Two members of the multi-award winning team behind the show, playwright Simon Stephens and director Marianne Elliott, are behind the new drama. We sat down with them to talk about their vision behind bringing the play to the West End stage, and what the titular idea of German physicist Werner Heisenberg is all about.
Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle will star Anne-Marie Duff and Kenneth Cranham, in a surprising and enlightening two-hander which sees two strangers meet by chance amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station.
