Marianne Elliott is an Olivier and Tony award-winning director. She's played an essential part in making The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse hugely successful. The former National Theatre producer Chris Harper has equally good theatrical credentials. Together they're known as Elliott & Harper, and their new theatre company is going great guns.
Add the respected playwright Simon Stephens to the mix, a man who was also deeply involved in 'Curious Incident' and you get a masterpiece in the making, inspired by the quirky, spooky-at-a-distance theory of quantum mechanics.
Stephens uses the theory as a brilliant way to understand the unique circumstances that sit behind just one remarkable encounter between two incredible people. It's called Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle, and it's premièring at Wyndham's Theatre in autumn 2017, predicted to sell out on a limited 14 week run.
The story? In an uncertain world, nobody can predict what brings people together. When a couple of total strangers meet by sheer coincidence amongst the crowds in a London Underground train station, both their lives are changed forever. The play stars the wonderful Anne-Marie Duff, and Kenneth Cranham plays the older man she falls for.
This is a lively, lovely and life-affirming two-hander of a play, a joy to encounter, and has been described as “A soaring, suspenseful, thrilling and wondrous play. Heisenberg resonates in your mind long after it’s over” by the New York Times' Ben Brantley. Don't miss it.

I bought these tickets on a whim as the title captured my eye :'Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principal', thinking I might learn something about quantum physics! Well, lesson learnt - don't expect the title to actually tell you anything about the story! Its love story between a 40+ woman basically wanting a load of cash and a 75 year old man. The story is surprisingly interesting though. The way it develops entices you in to the relationship and this with the brilliant use of the stage and lighting makes it on the whole a good show (but nothing whatsoever ever to do with physics!).
