Mathematics of the Heart (2011)
Kefi Chadwick (playwright) / Donnacadh O\'Briain (director)

An expert on the mathematics of chaos theory deals with chaos in his own life in the form of a girlfriend seeking commitment, a brother crashing in his apartment, and a new graduate student.

I have not seen this play, but have only run across notices announcing its production at the Brighton Fringe festival in 2011. Additional information about the play would be most appreciated.
