Volcano Theatre’s Infinity Friday at Capitol

Rave reviews for upcoming Capitol Season show Infinity.

Volcano Theatre’s Infinity will be on the Capitol Theatre stage Friday, January 24 at 7:30 p.m., and it’s going to be incredible.

“Think Tom Stoppard meets Marriage Story,” suggests Jerry Wasserman (Vancouver Sun).

Three brilliant minds — a musician, a mathematician, and a theoretical physicist — collide like particles, learning that love and time are connected in ways they couldn’t have imagined in this shocking and revelatory play.

Infinity is an elegy to time, and what is transmitted through time, by leading Canadian playwright Hannah Moscovitch. It is a project commissioned and developed by Volcano and being premiered in co-production with Tarragon Theatre.

In the play, a girl-in-turmoil named Sarah-Jean Greene is researching her emotional self. Sarah-Jean is a mathematician. Her father was a theoretical physicist and her mother a violinist. Sarah-Jean takes a scientific approach to all the complex emotions she is presented with – in an attempt to discover what might constitute her future.

Infinity is a play infused with theoretical physics, classical music, the seeming impossibility of love, and the idea that what time offers us is more than we realize. It has been crafted with close input from world-renowned physicist Lee Smolin, and internationally-acclaimed composer Njo Kong Kie.

Infinity is on Friday, January 24 at 7:30 pm. The Capitol Box Office hours are 12-4:30 pm, Tueday through Friday for in person or phone sales - (250)352-6363, or online at capitoltheatre.ca
