Long Division


You are here


By Peter Dickinson • Directed by Richard Wolfe • A Pi Theatre Production


A strikingly imagined collision between seven individuals.

November 1726, 2016 • Studio B

One of Vancouver’s boldest theatre companies premieres a thoughtful and resonant multimedia experience about the mathematics of human connection. Seven characters struggle to explain their tragic entanglement using the language of geometry and logic, but find that one emotional variable consistently remains unsolved.

"When you go see a Pi Theatre show, you know you are in for a unique ride. Under Richard Wolfe's artistic direction they have produced some truly provocative theatre."David C. Jones, OUT TV
