Also roaming around the spirit world is the ghost of 17th-century French mathematician Pierre de Fermat, played with comical vanity by Marco Aponte, who also has a brief and awkward turn as a London policeman. When these competing influences start to face off, it provides some of the play’s most diverting moments. Colonialism is never far from the surface in Hardy’s attitude toward Ramanujan, whose culture he sees as a significant hindrance that the younger mathematician has almost uncannily but not entirely overcome through raw talent. He likes Ramanujan and respects him to a point, but his attitude toward him is clearly paternalistic for more reasons than simple age and experience. Rarely commented upon but often self-evident in his dismissive comments, this underlying condescension adds a more sinister tinge to what otherwise might be seen simply as a tragic mismatch of temperaments.

In blazing heat, the ceremony opened with the now-traditional “Wacky Walk,” when graduates pour onto the field in creative costumes, from yellow jumpsuits and princess gowns to Native American headdresses and bikinis. Some walked on their hands, not their feet, in a feat of gymnastics. Techies carried signs like “Nerd Is the Word,” “Scientist In The Resistance,” and “Proficient in Microsoft Excel – Hire Me!!”. Celebrating the humanities and a personal transformation, one grad’s placard read: “From straight pre-med to gay medievalist.”.
