Free admission for student-directed Copenhagen, February 12-14

student-directed play CopenhagenUW-Green Bay senior Matt Fayfer directs an upcoming production of the play “Copenhagen.” The play, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Feb. 12, 13 and 14 in the University Theatre, features three actors depicting a mysterious meeting between nuclear physicists Neils Bohr and Werner Heisenberg in Nazi-occupied Denmark near the beginning of World War II.

“While the play’s subject matter may seem a bit heavy, the audience will find enjoyment from the intellectual stimulation offered by listening to Bohr and Heisenberg argue the issue back and forth,” Fayfer said.

The performances are all free, but seating is limited. For tickets call (920)465-2217 or 1-800-328-TKTS. Read more.
