In science, the Uncertainty Principle states that "the momentum and position of a particle cannot both be precisely determined at the same time." Using this theme as a metaphor for the ever-changing landscape of life during the Covid-19 pandemic, NHTP artists are creating a new docudrama based on interviews with community members between April 2020 and April 2021.

"Even, or perhaps especially, in uncertainty we can find beauty,” says NHTP Artistic Director Catherine Stewart. The Uncertainty Principle will illuminate the anxiety and confusion of these times, as well as human resilience and innovation, and profound spiritual transformation. 

The Uncertainty Principle will be the culmination of a theatrical process that began in the spring of 2020, when hundreds of NHTP donors supported the creation of a theatrical program so new it was christened We Don't Know What This is Yet. The play will be written and performed by NHTP artists, and released for an online audience.

As part of the larger project The We Don't Know What This Is Yet Podcast launched in March 2021, a collection of interviews from community members and creative responses from New Hampshire artists.
