"Proof"

Proof

Playhouse 1960 Main Stage presents David Auburn’s Proof directed by Meredith Ann Gaines to open its 2019 – 2020 season. The production opens September 13 @ 8:00 pm. Opening night performance is followed with a champagne reception. Proof continues its run September 14, 20, 21, 27 & 28 @ 8:00pm. September 29 has a 3:00 pm matinee performance. Proof was awarded the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play. The play concerns Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius in his fifties and professor at the University of Chicago, and her struggle with mathematical genius and mental illness. Catherine had cared for her father through a lengthy mental illness. Upon Robert’s death, his ex-graduate student Hal discovers a paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers in Robert’s office. The title refers both to that proof and to the play’s central question: Can Catherine prove the proof’s authorship? Along with demonstrating the proof’s authenticity, the daughter also finds herself in a relationship with 28-year-old Hal. Throughout, the play explores Catherine’s fear of following in her father’s footsteps, both mathematically and mentally and her desperate attempts to stay in control.
