Proof

By David Auburn
directed by m. Bevin O’Gara

NOV 23 - DEC 15, 2019

Catherine has spent years taking care of her father, a famous mathematician. In the wake of his death, Catherine grapples with what she may or may not have inherited—from brilliance to madness. With the appearance of Catherine’s estranged sister, an unexpected suitor, and a notebook containing a groundbreaking proof, Catherine’s life, and the future of the field, change in an instant. A poignant portrayal of explosive genius and the complexity of inheritance.
