Lab Theater hosts staged reading of Michael Frayn's 'Copanhagen' March 31

A staged reading of Michael Frayn's Copanhagen will take place at 7:00 p.m. at the Laboratory Theater of Florida on March 31.

Copenhagen centers on a real life mystery: Why did Werner Heisenberg, head of the German nuclear program, and Niels Bohr's erstwhile protege visit Bohr and his wife Margrethe in Nazi-occupied Copenhagen in 1941? Both are thrust into the moral and practical quandaries of deciding if an atomic weapon should ever be used,, assuming of course, if could be successfully built. Not only do these longtime friends find themselves fundamentally opposed to certain aspects of developing an atomic bomb, they also tackle the politics and philosophical complications of their research as World War II unfolds in Europe.

This staged reading is a wonderful opportunity to join in on a discussion with the cast and director about science and religion and the morality questions the play presents. Admission is $5 at the door. Sorry, no reservations. The theater is located at 1634 Woodford Ave. Fort Myers, 33901.
