By David Auburn
Directed by Taylor Boes
The young but guarded Catherine grieves over the loss of her father, a legendary mathematician at the University of Chicago who suffers from heart failure and a quickly deteriorating mental illness. Just as Catherine begins to give into her fear that she, too, might suffer from her father’s condition, Catherine’s older sister Claire returns home to help “settle” family affairs. Hal, one of her father’s old students, starts to poke around the house at the same time, looking for notes and relics of the genius. What Hal discovers in an old speckle-bound notebook brings to light a buried family secret. It tests the sisters’ kinship as well as the romantic feelings growing between Catherine and Hal. This poignant drama about love and reconciliation unfolds on the back porch of a house settled in a suburban university town, that is, like David Auburn’s writing, both simple and elegant.
Calling all Directors!
Would you like to direct for us?
We are always looking for directors so please shoot us an email if you're interested!
In light of the pandemic we will not be presenting the slate of shows planned for the 2020-2021 season. We are working on alternative productions that can be presented with the safety of the cast, crew, and patrons as our highest priority.
We will post productions on our website as we have clear direction that we can safely proceed.
