here for the review
On the eve of her 25th birthday, Catherine is coming
to grips dealing with death of her father, a brilliant but mentally
ill mathematician. The affections of Hal, a post-grad maths
student, complicate matters as he wants to search through her
father's papers. The arrival of her estranged elder sister to help
settle up affairs is another undesired intrusion.
The play challenges the fine line between genius and mental
instability through these four characters. The story is told in a
funny, intelligent as well as dramatic way.
Written in 2000 this engaging play is better known for the 2005
film adaptation with Gwyneth Paltrow, Hope Davis, and Anthony
Hopkins and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Doors open 7:15pm, show starts 7:45pm.
