Is the act of observation enough to change one's trajectory—or identity? And what exactly do a retired butcher and an enigmatic younger woman have in common with the famed author of quantum mechanics' uncertainty principle? Those are among the riddles playwright Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) explores in this two-hander about an unconventional, uncertain romance sparked by a random encounter at a train station. Burning Coal Theatre Company's regional premiere is a coup, opening one month after the close of its Broadway run. Local hero Emily Ranii returns to direct beloved veteran Tom McCleister and newcomer Sarah Hankins. —Byron Woods
