Win a double pass to new theatre show The Mathematics of Longing

A life-affirming adventure of the sublime.

Equal parts whimsical and sobering, The Mathematics of Longing is a poignant illustration of science and humanity, tackling first loves, love lost, family tragedy and the triumph of the human spirit through a series of vignettes.

This world premiere – showing at La Boite from 2–23 June – invites audiences to “think outside the square”, according to multi-award winning writer Suzie Miller.

The Mathematics of Longing is realised by a distinguished cross-disciplinary collective helmed by The Farm’s Kate Harman and Gavin Webber (The Ninth Wave; Tide), La Boite Artistic Director and CEO Todd MacDonald, and powerhouse performers Ngoc Phan (A Streetcar Named Desire; The Village) and Merlynn Tong (Blue Bones), with sound design by Regurgitator’s Ben Ely and set design by Brisbane-based visual artist Ross Manning.

Enter below for your chance to win a double pass to the preview performance on Saturday 2 June at La Boite. The competition closes at 5pm on Thursday 28 May and the winner will be contacted via email. Good luck!
