A Disappearing Number

A Disappearing Number

Novello Theatre, Aldwych, London, WC2B 4LD

19 performances only from 10-25 September 2010
Press performance: Tuesday 14 September 2010, 7:30pm

This September, Complicite’s multi-award winning production of A Disappearing Number will return to London for a limited season at the Novello Theatre (10-25 September – press night: Tuesday 14 September, 7:30pm).

This highly anticipated return to the capital will reunite the original cast of Simon McBurney’s acclaimed production for 19 performances in the West End.

Staged with Complicite’s characteristic elegance and startling visual originality, A Disappearing Number takes as its starting point one of the most mysterious and romantic collaborations of all time. In London a man attempts to unravel the secrets of his lover. In Bangalore a woman collapses on a train. In 1914 Englishman GH Hardy, Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, seeks to comprehend the ideas of the Indian prodigy, Srinivasa Ramanujan. A Disappearing Number weaves a provocative theatrical pattern about our relentless compulsion to understand.

A Disappearing Number has received the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play (2008), the Evening Standard Award for Best Play and Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play (2007).
A Disappearing Number was conceived and directed by Simon McBurney, and devised by the company, who are: David Annen, Firdous Bamji, Paul Bhattacharjee, Hiren Chate, Divya Kasturi, Chetna Pandya, Saskia Reeves and Shane Shambhu. The production features original music by Nitin Sawhney, design by Michael Levine, lighting by Paul Anderson, sound by Christopher Shutt, projection by Sven Ortel and costume by Christina Cunningham.
