In a universe where nothing is determined and everything is in chaos, a pattern is formed. 2 particles x and y get attracted to each other, and remain forever in a pattern…attracted stronger and stronger the same way into infinity, without ever meeting.Chaos Theory is a comedy of ideas that tracks the eras, the words, the lives of two professors who experience a lifetime together without expressing their real emotions. Set in colleges in the US and India, among academics and the social changes of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, the play is an exploration of love not as perfect chemistry but like the chaos theory itself, an imperfect physics.Chaos Theory was the winner of the Julliard Playwriting Fellowship in 2004 and the only Indian play to be a finalist in the BBC World Playwriting Contest in 2007. The play has played all over the USA in productions and staged readings by Alter Ego Productions, SALAAM Theatre, Producers Club, Here Theatre-Soho, 78th Street Theatre Lab, American Theatre of Actors, American Place Theatre, Juilliard, Bodhi Art Gallery, Greenwich Street Theatre – all in New York City, ArtWallah Festival – Los Angeles, Georgetown University, STAGE festival – Washington DC, Edward Albee Theatre Festival – Alaska and Rasik Arts – Toronto.It opened in Bombay in 2008 and has completed a run of 50 shows. Aside from Bombay the play has been performed in Muscat, Dubai and extensively around India.
Rahul da Cunha’s Chaos Theory, written by Anuvab Pal, is When Harry Met Sallywith intellect…The play is fresh and full of wit and charm.

Chaos Theory is much more complex than the simple definition that inspired Pal. Love is undoubtedly even more complex than the Chaos Theory. Yet, strangely it is never a topic of intellectual respectability. Pal’s play gives love due respect. But in the end it remains elusive, as it always will.
Pragya Tiwari, The Mumbai Mirror
The laughs come thick and fast in Rahul da Cunha’s production of Anuvab Pal’s script, which sets out to giggle at anybody who believes that the personal could be political.
