David Auburn has written a wonderfully compassionate and knowing play about a young woman, Catherine (Donna Kennis) who, on the death of her father, must sort out and deal with a number of long denied feelings and fears. Catherine’s father, Robert (Andy Mollema), was a brilliant mathematician who crossed the thin line from genius to insanity several years earlier, leaving Catherine as his sole care giver for all her adult life. Now she must adjust not only to his death, but come to grips with her fear that his mathematical genius, which she has inherited, comes with a dreadful price, that she may be fated to the same mental degeneration and insanity as her father.
In a dazzling series of scenes, David Auburn gradually reveals and embellishes this situation, which is exacerbated by the presence of Catherine’s older sister, the bossy and resentful Claire (Pat Cote) and Hal (Cory Bissel), a former student of her father’s who Catherine finds attractive, but who may only be out to further his own career.
