A mathematical genius and University of Chicago professor, Robert, suffers with mental illness. Catherine, his brilliant and emotionally fragile daughter, is struggling to get her own life together. Torn by the attentions of her older sister Claire and Robert’s former student Hal, Catherine’s sense of her own identity is challenged. How much of her father’s terrifying mental illness or creative genius is she destined to inherit?

Drama at Lower Columbia College offers courses designed to provide students with an understanding of the theatre and an appreciation of theatre, acting, technical theatre, and production experience through performance. Students develop the ability to express themselves in many ways: acting on stage, seminar discussion, play analysis, review writing, script interpretation, kinesthetic expression, and technical proficiency in set, costume, and light design.
One play is presented each quarter during the academic year. Participation is open to all students, college employees and members of the local community.
Students interested in acting can complete an associate degree or begin studies to transfer to a baccalaureate program. Drama courses can also be an important supplement for those who plan to major in the humanities or social sciences.
