Bombs Away


The Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre consistently brings challenging and thoughtful dramatic works to Kansas City, and with its popular Script-in-Hand Series in partnership with the Kansas City Public Library, it does so for free. The program presents Michael Frayn's acclaimed play Copenhagen, an intense examination of the relationship between the theoretical physicists Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, teacher and protégé, respectively, as well as friends and colleagues, who found themselves on opposing sides of the race to develop nuclear weaponry during World War II. This supercritical mass of quantum mechanics, loyalties and human morality is scheduled to react at 2 p.m. at the Kansas City Central Library (14 West 10th Street). Tickets are free but must be reserved at 816-701-3407 or — Grace Suh
