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.
