Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, this intriguing and passionate play examines the nature of genius and the power of love.
Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father. When he dies she is left alone to pick up the pieces of her life without him. She may have inherited at least a part of her father’s genius — and perhaps some of his instability as well. When Hal discovers a ground breaking mathematical proof among the 103 notebooks Catherine’s father left behind, Catherine is forced to question how much she can actually trust those closest to her.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Tony Award for Best Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, David Auburn’s Proof is a passionate and intelligent story about the uncompromising nature of genius and a family’s struggle to cope with the ongoing burden of mental illness.
