Drama Association Presents "Copenhagen"



Theatre program at a Christian college

 

The Covenant College Drama Association presents Michael Frayn's play Copenhagen on March 20, 21, and 27 at 8:00 pm and March 28 at 2:30 pm in the Sanderson Hall auditorium.

 

Winner of the 2000 Tony Award for Best Play, Frayn's historical mystery depicts German physicist Werner Heisenberg's visit to Danish physicist Neils Bohr in occupied Denmark during World War II. The play deals with everything from quantum mechanics and the atomic bomb to human relationships and the loss of a child.

 

Senior physics major and theatre minor Justin Johns '09 directs the play. "Copenhagen is a powerfully human play," he says. "We can relate to Heisenberg, Bohr, and Margrethe and the very real struggles that they face.  Besides hopefully being entertained, we should walk away with a sense of responsibility to one another."

 

The cast of Copenhagen includes Nathanael Booth, David Anthony, and Kate Sarafolean.

 

Tickets are sold at the door: $7 for adults, $5 for seniors and students.  For more information, contact Iemima Ploscariu at 916.642.3430.

 

  Listen to Prof. Camille Hallstrom talk about past theatre productions at Covenant.
