Entangled premiered at the 2019 Ottawa International Fringe Festival. The play featured Paul Rainville (Carl Jung) and David Frisch (Wolfgang Pauli). The original theatrical production was directed by Cathy Clark, and the stage manager was Jane Osborn.  

Entangled’s development benefitted from a Theatre 4.669 summer script workshop led by dramaturge and University of Ottawa theatre professor Kevin Orr.  

The idea for the play was a result of the playwright’s time as writer-in-residence at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  

The edit, sound design and audio mix are by Chris Tolley. 

This audio drama was produced in association with Laura Mullin and Chris Tolley of PlayME podcast now on CBC Radio One.
