The play is about Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a recently deceased professor and her struggle with mathematical genius and mental illness. Catherine had cared for her father. Upon Robert’s death, his student Hal discovers a proof about prime numbers in Robert’s office. Can Catherine prove the proof’s authorship? Along with demonstrating the proof’s authenticity, the daughter also finds herself in a relationship with 28-year-old Hal. Throughout, the play explores Catherine’s fear of following in her father’s footsteps, both mathematically and mentally and her desperate attempts to stay in control.
