Heisenberg Tickets
Geary Theatre Tickets
Things To Do In San Francisco

Since David Lean's 1945 film "Brief Encounter," no romantic has been able to look at a banal railway station as simply a commuter hub. Each connecting line poses new amorous possibilities; each departing train foreshadows the ending of a passion too intense for the workaday world.

British playwright Simon Stephens offers a novel variation of the old love-at-the-terminal story line in "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.

Directed by Mark Brokaw, this Manhattan Theatre Club production, which opened on Thursday at the Mark Taper Forum, has retained its lauded Broadway duo from last season, Mary-Louise Parker and Denis Arndt. The play, a smaller offering by the Tony-winning adapter of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" (coming to the Ahmanson Theatre in August) has the feeling of a contrived acting exercise, but the experience deepens as the actors probe their characters' contradictory hearts.
