Produced by Anne-Marie Bouthillette | Directed by Matt Kowalyk
Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father’s who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father’s madness—or genius—will she inherit? Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award, the play is both compassionate and funny.
