*This production is recommended for high school and older audiences.*

On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind.

Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness—or genius—will she inherit?

Author: David Auburn
Winner of
the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play.
Director: Rebecca Rogers

"Here, those of us who want their dramatic characters to be real people need not feel excluded. (...) All four -- whether loving, hating, encouraging or impeding one another -- are intensely alive, complex, funny, human. (...) Out of this curious quartet, Auburn creates emotionally and intellectually enveloping music." - John Simon, New York

"...Veering gracefully from past to present and from reflection to confrontation, the playwright traces the development of his characters and plot with a scientist's preciseness and a poet's lyricism." - Elysa Gardner, USA Today

Proof features Makayla Baker, Leigh Beauchamp, Wil Browning, and Frank Dellorco.
The creative team includes Noel Levan (Lighting), Josh Mitri (sound), Michele Sullivan and Jonathan Mckinney (sets), Alyssa Partlow and Liz Miiller (Costume), & Marissa Plummer (stage manager).
