A disappearing number

Share this page

This is the second part of our mini series focussing on mathematics coming to life on stage and in film. We revisit our 2008 interview with mathematician and actor Victoria Gould and mathematician Marcus DuSautoy, who were both involved in the development of the play A disappearing number produced by Complicité. The play explores the fascinating collaboration between the mathematicians GH Hardy and Srinivasa Ramanujan. Find out how theatre can embody, not just the story of the people involved, but also the mathematics itself.

You can also read about A disappearing number in this article. To find out more about Victoria Gould's career as an actor and mathematician, see this article or listen to last week's episode of Maths on the move.
