An electric encounter turns into a life-changing experience.
Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Georgie spots Alex, a much older man, and plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game. Simon Stephens' sharply original HEISENBERG brings to blazing, theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection.
The Wrong People Have Money
by Reed McColm
April 29 to May 17, 2020
The funniest play ever written about moving Greenland.
Popular York University professor Martin Delancey is challenged by a wealthy consortium of investors to conduct a serious study into the feasibility of an "impossible" suggestion he raises in his classroom: Is it possible to move the country of Greenland, in its entirety, south in the Atlantic, thereby bringing the planet a newly habitable land mass? Delancey and his team encounter myriad obstacles in that study, but also increasingly excited worldwide interest, which may just turn a wild idea into a major business opportunity.
