The Broadway transfer of Heisenberg officially opened October 13 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Following a sold-out, world-premiere run at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Off-Broadway space last year, Simon Stephens’ acclaimed two-hander returned to the New York stage with Denis Arndt and Mary-Louise Parker reprising their roles.

The limited engagement has been extended due to ticket demand and is scheduled to continue through December 11.

The new play, by The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Tony winner Stephens with direction by Mark Brokaw, sees two beguiling strangers quickly embark on a life-changing journey.

“Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Georgie spots Alex, a much older man, and plants a kiss on his neck,” state production notes. “This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game.”

The creative team includes Mark Wendland (scenic design), Michael Krass (costume design), Donald Holder (lighting design) and David Van Tieghem (sound design).
