Heisenberg is a life-affirming mating dance between two people who are so utterly dissimilar that of course they are made for each other. It is a probing work that considers the multiplicity of alternatives that could shape our lives at every moment.
Tony Award winning playwright Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) presents a refreshing look into just how unpredictable life can be.

In this hilarious, raucous, all-female “power-play” inspired by Shakespeare’s Shrew, contestant Katherine has political aspirations to match her beauty pageant ambitions. All she needs to revolutionize the American government is the help of one ultra-conservative senator’s aide on the cusp of a career breakthrough, and one bleeding-heart liberal blogger who will do anything for her cause. Well, that and a semi-historically-accurate ether trip. This madcap romp tackles modern American political extremism, feminism, James Madison, Shakespeare, and beauty queens, The three slightly insane women at its core just might be political geniuses. Here’s lookin’ at you, America.
