Event Details

Winner of both the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2001, David Auburn’s Proof is more about the value of trust in relationships than mathematical equations, and mixes in humor with the tumultuous emotions. On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, over the long weekend that follows a significant family event, 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?

·      "When we thinkof the great American playwrights, we think of Arthur Miller and Eugene O'Neill and Lillian Hellman, in earlier generations; Wendy Wasserstein and Tony Kushner, Jon Robin Baitz and Donald Margulies today: They are always writing about big ideas and wrapping them in family squabbles that get us where we live. Welcome David Auburn to the club." —NY Magazine.
