PROOF BY DAVID AUBURN. DIRECTED BY CATHY WILMOT
Proof is the story of an enigmatic young woman, Catherine, her manipulative sister, their brilliant father, and an unexpected suitor. The young but guarded Catherine grieves over the loss of her father, a famous mathematician who had become a legend at the local university for solving complicated proofs, and for suffering from dementia. Just as Catherine begins to give in to her fear that she, too, might suffer from her father’s condition, her older sister Claire returns home to help “settle” family affairs and Hal, one of the father’s old students, starts to poke around the house. What Hal discovers in an old speckle-bound notebook brings to light a buried family secret, which tests the sisters’ kinship as well as the romantic feelings growing between Catherine and Hal. A staged reading is a thoroughly enjoyable way to experience a play. With no sets and costumes, engage your imagination to create the play in your own mind while hearing it read by talented actors.
“The line between madness and genius; the degree to which we resemble our parents; the difficulty of ever really proving the relationships that exist between two objects, mathematical or otherwise. Such is the stuff of David Auburn’s cerebral, Pulitzer-winning play.” The Guardian. Laura Barnett. 24 Mar 2013. Tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com
