THEATRE Royal Bath Productions and Jonathan Church Productions present a new production of Michael Frayn’s Copenhagen at Malvern Theatres for one week only from July 5.

In Nazi occupied Copenhagen in 1941, a clandestine encounter took place between two Nobel Prize winning physicists, Dane Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, a German.

The men were old friends and long-term colleagues, but now found themselves on opposite sides of the divide.

Under the watchful eye of Bohr’s wife, Margrethe, Frayn speculates on the debates which might have taken place, an exchange of transformative ideas which had huge implications for both the Nazis and the Allies, and for our world today.

This historical detective story, conjured from a smattering of scientific facts, is a daring, fascinating and stimulating drama that enjoyed a hugely acclaimed run at the National Theatre before transferring to the West End and Broadway and winning the 2000 Tony Award for Best Play.

Copenhagen stars one of our most popular stage and screen actors, Haydn Gwynne (The Windsors, Drop The Dead Donkey, Billy Elliot The Musical, Peak Practice).

She is joined by Olivier Award nominee Malcolm Sinclair (Pressure, This House, The Hollow Crown) and Philip Arditti (Globe Theatre, National Theatre).

Haydn Gwynne was BAFTA nominated for her role as newsreader Alex in Channel 4’s Drop The Dead Donkey and won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical for the Broadway production of Billy Elliot the Musical.

Malcolm Sinclair was Olivier Award nominated for his roles as Eisenhower in Pressure and Major Flack in Privates on Parade. Other credits in a career spanning more than thirty years include regular appearances for the RSC and National Theatre, film roles in Casino Royale and V for Vendetta and Judge John Deed, Silk and Parade’s End on television.

Copenhagen will be on stage at Malvern Theatres from Monday 5 – Saturday, July 10.
