Simon Stephens
 astounded audiences with his remarkable The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in 2018. Now, this Tony Award-winning playwright is back with an intimate and life-affirming offbeat romance.

The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle helped redefine the world of physics, but Stephens is less concerned with quantum mechanics than with the atomic uncertainty of the human heart. With wit and dry humour, Heisenberg asks us to take a chance on love and embrace the magic of the unknown.

Kat Stewart (Offspring) stars as the audacious and spontaneous Georgie opposite Peter Kowitz (Janet King) as Alex, with acclaimed director Tom Healey (The Spook) making his debut with MTC for this Australian Premiere.
