Cesear’s Forum is dedicated to presenting unconventional, new or lesser known plays that explore theory and technique to reveal aspects of the social, political, economic and ideological properties of daily life. The company produces intermittently, on a project by project basis (unusual in Cleveland), currently, one play per year, rather than a traditional seasonal approach.
Cesear’s Forum presents Michael Frayn’s
Sept 20th – Oct 26th
Kennedy’s at Playhouse Square
Nuclear threat, policy, power and human motivation are the basis of Michael Frayn’s play COPENHAGEN, being presented by Cesear’s Forum in a limited September/October engagement at Kennedy’s Down Under, Playhouse Square. The mystery of an actual meeting between the two great physicists, German Werner Heisenberg and Danish Niels Bohr in1941 occupied Denmark, is never fully explained. The practical application of nuclear physics and their struggle with the inevitable ethical dilemmas emerge. The play is presented fictionally, “inside the heads” of three characters, Bohr’s wife Margrethe is also present, as time shifts in the past and they relive their memories and speculations on the subsequent ramifications that define history.
