On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness—or genius—will she inherit?
Those wishing to audition should plan to attend one of the general auditions (Sunday 12/1 or Monday 12/2). Actors should arrive just before 7 to fill out paperwork - bring your calendar, as you will be asked to mark any conflicts you have Sunday-Thursday evenings for the duration of the rehearsal period. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Character descriptions are listed below.
Catherine- left school to care for her father. May have inherited some of his genius as well as some of his instability. Sarcastic, mid-twenties, brilliant but mentally unwell.
Robert- Catherine's father. A brilliant mathematician who lost his mind. Recent deceased.
Claire- Catherine's sister. Visiting from NY for their father's funeral. Put together, in control, intelligent but average.
Hal- one of Robert's former students, looking for valuable material among his notebooks. Plays drums in a band of math geeks. Romantically involved with Catherine.
