About this show

Inspired by the true story of the unusual friendship between two of the 20th century's most remarkable pure mathematicians--Cambridge University don G.H. (Godfrey Harold) Hardy and Srinivasa Ramanujan, a young Brahmin genius--A Disappearing Number interweaves their tale with a fictional contemporary love story between a present-day university lecturer and her American-Asian partner. Past, present, and future occur simultaneously onstage as A Disappearing Number explores such themes as the beauty of science, our quest for meaning and knowledge, who we are and how we connect to one another--and ultimately, what is permanent and what disappears forever.
