(event is over)

Join us for another installment of Forward Theater's Play Club, an interactive discussion that's like a book club, but for plays! Staff from Forward Theater will lead the discussion and professional actors will act out scenes from the play. Refreshments will be provided. Pick up a copy of the play at the lower-level reference desk This time, we're discussing Simon Stephens' Heisenberg, a two-character play about the consequences of a chance encounter between a reserved older gentleman originally from Ireland and a rowdy middle-aged American woman living in London who slingshots herself into his life. Forward Theater will present Heisenberg in its Wisconsin premier running January 17 - February 3. Registration is required for this discussion: online using the link above or by email at info@midlibrary.org. Or register in person at the lower level reference desk when you pick up a copy of the play. About Heisenberg: A chance encounter between Georgie (flirtatious, mysterious) and Alex (a much older man) starts with a kiss that changes both of their lives. What does Georgie want? And can she be trusted? These two strangers, set adrift by life and loss, embark upon a fascinating game of cat and mouse that changes course with each new revelation. There are many possible lives we can live – but each choice we make alters the journey. “On its surface, [Heisenberg] is a satisfyingly sentimental, life- affirming mating dance between two people who are so utterly dissimilar that of course they are made for each other. But if you choose to tune into the quieter frequencies, you’ll detect the presence of a probing work that considers the multiplicity of alternatives that could shape our lives at every moment.” - The New York Times
