In David Alex’s new play, a bright young mathematician applies the principles of his trade first to winning the heart of his former English teacher, then to confronting her terminal illness. A character with an explanation for everything coming face-to-face with the unexplainable (love, death) is usually compelling on stage, but here we remain distanced from the protagonist because Alex rarely allows him any humanizing doubts or pangs. Instead, he just keeps offering cheeky, math-related comebacks to life’s major quandaries. By the time the inexorable wins, we’ve long since run out of patience. (ZT)
