Following its triumph during bite07, multi award-winning hit A Disappearing Number, returns by popular demand.

Taking as its starting point one of the most mysterious and romantic collaborations of all time, this is a story about connections between ideas, cultures and times. In London a man attempts to unravel the secrets of his lover. In Bangalore a woman collapses on a train. In Cambridge in 1914 Englishman GH Hardy 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.
