ABOUT THE PLAY:
Two geniuses. Two worlds. One maddening riddle. In 1913, a young, self-taught mathematical genius in India named Srinivasa Ramanujan is invited to England to work with G. H. Hardy, a Cambridge professor. But just as mathematics draws these two men from vastly different cultures together, it also possesses the power to destroy them. A riveting fantasy based on real events.
“This is one terrific theater evening…a play which grabs you from the beginning and takes you through an often funny, but moving and deeply human experience.” Berkeley Daily Planet
