Staged with Complicite's characteristic elegance and startling visual originality, A Disappearing Number takes as its starting point one of the most mysterious and romantic collaborations of all time. In London a man attempts to unravel the secrets of his lover. In Bangalore a woman collapses on a train. In 1914 Englishman GH Hardy, Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, seeks to comprehend the ideas of the Indian prodigy, Srinivasa Ramanujan.

A Disappearing Number weaves a provocative theatrical pattern about our relentless compulsion to understand. A Disappearing Number has received the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play (2008), the Evening Standard Award for Best Play and Critics' Circle Award for Best New Play (2007).
