In Heisenberg, Parker will play Clare, a woman who unexpectedly kisses a much older man (Kenneth) amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station. According to MTC, "This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game...Is this the strangest thing that two people have ever done in the history of the world?"

Stephens' play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has received international acclaim and is currently playing the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Broadway. His newest work, Heisenberg, was commissioned by MTC.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public April 22.
