When a volubly chatty and possibly disturbed American woman with no apparent boundaries (Weeds' Mary-Louise Parker) kisses the neck of a stranger — reticent, 76-year-old British butcher Alex (Denis Arndt) — in a London train station, it sets in motion a series of unexpected exchanges in Simon Stephens' witty 2015 play Heisenberg, directed for Center Theatre Group by Mark Brokaw. Is the woman merely trying to take advantage of the butcher for some reason, or is their bizarre, meet-cute encounter the beginning of a passionate affair between two seemingly mismatched loners? As Georgie, Parker is an astonishing, beguiling presence as she's swept up within the nonstop whirlwind of Stephens' artful words, contrasted by Arndt's anchoring gravitas.
