Fresh from a Broadway run that closed in December, Simon Stephen’s “Heisenberg” gets a staging by Raleigh’s Burning Coal Theatre Company starring Equity actors Tom McCleister and Sarah Hankins. A freewheeling 42-year-old woman and a quiet 75-year-old man meet accidentally, a connection is formed and a surprising, ever-changing relationship ensues (the title comes from scientist Werner Heisenberg’s “Uncertainty Principle”).
7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday (through Feb. 5). $25 (seniors $20, students/military $15). 919-834-4001 or burningcoal.org.
