Mathematics of the Heart
What happens when love doesn't add up?
Dr Paul MacMillan is a professor of Chaos Theory. Specialist subject: storm patterns. A month after the death of his father, Paul's life has ground to a halt. With his itinerant ne'er do well brother, Chancer, in his spare room, his girlfriend Emma pushing for a future and the arrival of a beautiful new PhD student, Zainab, prediction is proving increasingly difficult. Then the discovery of his father's final and surprise possession catapults Paul's world into real chaos.
Intelligent, witty and sincere, this drama combines strong emotion with knowing humour and a cleverly relevant academic backbone, whereby scientific theories rebound themes and motifs, and inform the characters' apparently random decisions and actions.
Mathematics of the Heart won the Brighton Fringe Festival New Writing South Best New Play 2011 andthe Evening Argus 'Outstanding Artistic Contribution' Award 2011.
