Plot synopsis

A troubled young woman has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician.  After his death, she must deal with her estranged sister, and a former student of her father's, who is seeking the father's mathematical journals.  She must also cope with the possibility of inheriting her father's madness as well as his talent.

Auditioners will be asked to present a one-minute contemporary monologue (serious or comic) and read scenes from the script.


Character Descriptions

Catherine: mid-20's — A young woman who inherited much of her father's mathematical genius and, she fears, his "instability" as well.

Claire: late 20s/early 30s — Catherine's older sister, a practical and business-minded woman who has been comfortably successful in her work and relationships.

Hal (Harold) Dobbs: mid/late 20s — One of Robert's last Ph.D. students, un-geeky, eager to extend his mentor's legacy.

Robert: 50s/60s — A brilliant mathematician, praised for his groundbreaking work in his youth, but whose later years have been plagued by delusional mental illness.
