Kate possesses the makings of a gifted mathematician with an enthusiasm for exploring the mysteries of space and time. But this is the 1950s and women are routinely laughed out of scientific circles. Besides, every family has its star, and Kate’s brother already holds that distinction. Hindered by prejudices against women, Kate is confined to a life of unfulfilling jobs, leading her to become bitter and unhappy. The Little Years confronts the impact of chauvinism and explores the nature of fame, the value of art, and the passing of time.

John Mighton’s plays have been performed across Canada, as well as in Europe, Japan, and the United States. He is the recipient of several national awards, including the Elinore & Lou Siminovitch Prize and the Governor General’s Literary Award for Possible Worlds & A Short History of Night and most recently Half Life. John holds an M.A. in philosophy from McMaster University and a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Toronto. He is currently a Fellow of the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences.

"In a world where every artist seems to be called upon to justify his existence, Mighton proves that even if its creation is accidental, the value of art can be huge." - John Coulbourn

In a reworked revival […] John Mighton's The Little Years has been polished into a gem. - J. Kelly Nestruck
