“What is time? … Everything we think, feel, or do reminds us of its existence”
– Lee Smolin, Time Reborn
How does a new Theory of Time change everything we know about ourselves? Three brilliant minds – a musician, a mathematician, & a theoretical physicist – smash together like colliding particles in an accelerator. Together they learn that love and time are connected in ways they couldn’t have imagined.
Infinity is a shocking, funny and revelatory new play about love, sex, & math by Tarragon Playwright-in-Residence Hannah Moscovitch developed with Volcano Theatre.
★★★½ out of 4: “Extremely affecting; Moscovitch is often called a “hot” Canadian playwright. But according to the laws of science, what is hot will inevitably cool. By now, she has surely proven that the more accurate descriptor is rock solid.” -Toronto Star
NNNN: “Brilliant; makes you feel as much as it makes you think” – NOW Magazine
★★★★: “A darkly funny, emotional and thought-provoking production” -Theatromania.com
★★★ out of 4: “Moving; beautifully acted.” -Globe and Mail
Infinity is approx. 80 minutes long with no intermission.
