Catherine's father, a famous mathematical genius, has just died after a long struggle with mental illness. When Hal, one of her father's former students, discovers a groundbreaking mathematical proof in his attic, it's up to the two of them to discover its history. The mathematical mystery and their budding romance cause Catherine to question both her own genius as well as whether her own sanity is at risk. This acclaimed play that inspired the 2005 film by the same name (starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins) won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and took home a Tony Award for Best Play.

A great mystery and well-cast. One of the most solid casts we've seen at Chanticleers. The actors kept us guessing in this classic who-dunnit. The direction kept us engaged with lots of comedy thrown in too. A solid, very good show.
