The production company have confirmed that its first production in the West End will be Marianne Elliot’s production of Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle at the Wyndham’s Theatre.
In this uncertain world, who can predict what brings people together? When two strangers meet by chance amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, their lives are changed forever.
Marianne Elliott ( The Curious incident of the dog in the Night-Time) will direct Anne-Marie Duff and Kenneth Cranham in the UK premiere of Simon Stephens’ new play, presented by the newly formed Elliott & Harper Productions.
The production will open for previews on the 3rd October and officially opening on the 9th October.
Talking about the play, Simon Stephens said: “I wanted to write about the most unpredictable and exciting woman I could imagine. I wanted to write a play about an older man because I’d never done that before. I wanted to write a play inspired by the way music works in the gaps between notes. I discovered ‘The Uncertainty Principle’ and it struck me that all life is contained within it’.
It has also been announced that other productions that Elliott & Harper will be presenting in the future include a new production of CS Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with West Yorkshire Playhouse and Catherine Schreiber. Directed by Sally Cookson, it will play at the Quarry Theatre at West Yorkshire Playhouse from 29 November 2017 – 21 January 2018. Joining Sally Cookson on the creative team are: War Horse designer, Rae Smith, sound designer Ian Dickinson, writer in the room, Adam Peck, movement director, Dan Canham and lighting designer, Bruno Poet with music by Benji Bower.
Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle will play at the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 3rd October 2017 until the 6th January 2018. To book tickets visit: Ticketmaster.co.uk, Discount Theatre.com, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Love Theatre.com, Theatre People.com and UK Tickets.co.uk.
