THe Story

Infinity is an elegy to time, and what is transmitted through time, by leading Canadian playwright Hannah Moscovitch. It is a project commissioned and developed by Volcano, and being premiered in co-production with Tarragon Theatre.

In the play, a girl-in-turmoil named Sarah-Jean Greene is researching her emotional self. Sarah-Jean is a mathematician. Her father was a theoretical physicist and her mother a violinist. Sarah-Jean takes a scientific approach to all the complex emotions she is presented with – in an attempt to discover what might constitute her future.

Infinity is a play infused with theoretical physics, classical music, the seeming impossibility of love, and the idea that what time offers us is more than we realize. It has been crafted with close input from world-renowned physicist Lee Smolin, and internationally-acclaimed composer Njo Kong Kie.

The result is a surprising, shocking, very funny and, we hope, revelatory new play about love, sex, and math…
