120 characters. 58 short scenes. A dazzling theatrical kaleidoscope.

A scientist dissects a brain. A man has a secret. A woman wants an affair. A child cannot feel pain. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone is her sibling's mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone’s never felt like this before. Through sex, death, feeling, thinking, taxidermy and karaoke they discover each other.

For many, Caryl Churchill is the world’s greatest living playwright. This contemporary masterpiece asks how our insatiable appetite for knowledge can be informed by our capacity for love.
