National Theatre Live: Complicite's A Disappearing Number

In National Theatre Live’s first venture beyond London, and first collaboration with another company, Complicite’s A Disappearing Number will be broadcast live from the Theatre Royal Plymouth.

A Disappearing Number weaves together the story of two love affairs, separated by a century and a continent. It tells of the heartbreaking collaboration between the greatest natural mathematician of the 20th century, Srinivasa Ramanujan; and his British counterpart, GH Hardy.

This piece is a compelling meditation on love, mathematics and the pain of exile in an age when we think we can belong anywhere and have everything.

A Complicite co-production with the Barbican, London, Ruhrfestspiele, Wiener Festwochen, Holland Festival, in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth.
