The Prodigy's World

Play

"The mother is determined to connect with the prodigy, but he is completely unresponsive. He is simply incapable of relating to her emotionally, even though on some level he wants to."

[Mother:]
Talk to me

[Prodigy:]
I know you?re there, but I won?t see you
I hear your voice but it can?t reach me

[Mother:]
Let me in

[Prodigy:]
It all seems so trivial
In the scheme of things

[Mother:]
Talk to me

[Prodigy:]
I feel your touch but it can?t move me
I hear your words but they confuse me

[Mother:]
Let me in

[Prodigy:]
It all comes to nothing
In the scheme of things

Patterns emerge in nature?s dance
Numbers are born in the wheel of chance
Why do I see this?
What does it mean to me?

A grand design in all its majesty
Vibrating strings, quantum gravity
Why was I chosen?
What does it mean to me?
Tell me why!
