Tangent, devised by Waxwing Theatre, with their signature mix of movement and words, at the New Diorama Theatre, north London, from 22 May to 9 June 2012.
Maths – how difficult can it be? Very – given the distractions students have to face: adolescence, love affairs, peers hell bent on disruption and teachers struggling to cope.Two 15 year olds - both struggling with an exam they have to pass. One, a girl at a failing school who wants to learn but can’t – learning seems to be the last thing the school is set up to do. The other, a midshipman in Nelson’s navy 200 years ealier. On board his warship he must learn to navigate and to do that he must learn his maths.
