Full Circle company to stage ‘Copenhagen’

By Staff | Jan 30, 2009

Coming to Shepherdstown on Feb. 6 is Michael Frayn’s Tony Award-winning play, “Copenhagen.”

Soaring at the intersection of art and science, “Copenhagen” is an explosive re-imagining of the mysterious wartime meeting between two Nobel laureates to discuss the atomic bomb.

Once the closest of friends, Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg have decided to give their allegiance to opposite sides in a world war. In the play critics called “ambitious, fiercely intelligent and daring,” the very essence of human motivation is explored – what makes any of us do the things we do?

Performances of “Copenhagen: will be at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 6 and 7, 13 and 14; and Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 8 and 15. The Full Circle Theater Company is at 113 S. Princess St. in historic Shepherdstown. Tickets are $15, and $8 for students with a valid ID.

Reserve your seats early; don’t be turned away at the door. Full Circle Theater Company’s season opener, “A Christmas Carol,” played to sold out houses. Guarantee your seat for “Copenhagen” by calling (304) 268-7798 or by e-mailing boxoffice@fullcircletheaterco.org.

Group discounts are available. Seats are general admission; there are some obstructed views, so advance purchase is highly recommended. Parking is available in the Jefferson Security Bank parking lot, across from the theater.
