Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, David Auburn’s Proof is an elegant and engaging story of passion, genius, and family bonds. Catherine has inherited her late father’s mathematical brilliance, but does she also share his madness? When one of his graduate students discovers a groundbreaking proof among the professor’s notebooks, Catherine must face the legacy her father has left behind. Directed with wit and compassion by Artistic Director Emily Mann, Proof is a play about fathers and daughters, the power of ideas, and the sacrifices we make for family.
