* 2018 Richard Gwartney Series Selection * 

Catherine has inherited her late father’s mathematical brilliance, but she is haunted by the fear that she might also share his debilitating mental illness. She has spent years caring for her now-deceased father, and upon his death, she feels left alone to pick up the pieces of her life without him.

Caught between a new-found connection with Hal, one of her father’s former students, and the reappearance of her sister, Claire, Catherine finds both her world and her mind growing increasingly unstable. Then Hal discovers a groundbreaking proof among the 103 notebooks Catherine’s father left behind, and Catherine is forced to further question how much of her father’s genius or madness will she inherit.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, David Auburn’s Proof is a passionate, intelligent story about fathers and daughters, the nature of genius, and the power of love.

Proof, a drama by David Auburn will be performed Thursdays through Sundays from August 2nd to 5th and 9th – 12th at the Hearn Stage at the Kress Theatre.  Thursday through Saturday performances begin at 7:30 PM, and Sunday matinees begin at 2:30 PM.

 

General Admission tickets are $15, Senior (60+) & Military tickets are $12, Students tickets are $7, and Thursday night tickets are only $5.
