a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|Not much happens in this play. A young Englishman who has just earned an undergraduate degree in mathematics goes on a trip to Australia to find himself. Co-author Helen Miller based the play on her true experiences with such a young man, who has supposedly since seen the play and returned to England to earn a doctorate in mathematics. Since I have not seen the play, I do not know how much of a role mathematics plays. If it turns out that it is essentially irrelevant, then I probably should remove this entry from the database. On the other hand, if it does play some more essential role, I would like to be able to say something about it. If you know any more than I do, please let me know!
(Thanks to Peter Freyd for sending me a review of the play.)

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books
let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
