The Taos Center for the Arts, Sleep Sanctuary and ToTo Home present:
NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE screening of A DISAPPEARING NUMBER on November 5 and 6 at 7:00 PM at the Taos Community Auditorium.


“A thrilling, thrilling, thrilling play” David Finkel, Washington Post

“Quietly mesmerizing…lucid, dynamic and continuously engaging” Charles Isherwood, New York Times

“Technically dazzling and beautifully staged” Frank Scheck, New York Post

A Disappearing Number opened in Plymouth in 2007 and has subsequently toured all over the world to New York, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ann Arbor, Milan, Sydney, Barcelona and London. Prior to the National Theatre Live broadcast it will play a limited West End season. Awards include the Olivier Award for Best New Play (2008), the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Play (2007) and The Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for Best New Play (2007).

A Disappearing Number weaves together the story of two love affairs, separated by a century and a continent. The first happens now. The second is set in 1914. It tells of the heartbreaking collaboration between the greatest natural mathematician of the 20th century, Srinivasa Ramanujan, a penniless Brahmin from Madras in South India, and his British counterpart, the brilliant Cambridge don GH Hardy.

With a haunting original score by Nitin Sawhney, this piece of startling visual poetry from Simon McBurney and Complicite 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.

Complicite is an internationally acclaimed theatre company, based in London. Led by Artistic Director Simon McBurney, the Company has won over 50 major awards worldwide.

Alongside its productions Complicite runs an extensive education programme which informs and reflects its artistic output.

Ticket prices are $12 for TCA members, $15 for the general public and $10 for students under 18. Tickets may be purchased by calling the TCA office at 575-758-2052 or at the box office which opens at 6:15 PM on the night of the performances.
