Proof
A Dramatists Play Service production

Proof is a wonderfully compassionate and knowing play about a young woman, Catherine who, on the death of her father, must sort out and deal with a number of long denied feelings and fears. Catherine’s father, Robert, was a brilliant mathematician who crossed the thin line from genius to insanity several years earlier, leaving Catherine as his sole care giver for all her adult life.

Now she must adjust not only to his death, but come to grips with her fear that his mathematical genius, which she has inherited, comes with a dreadful price, that she may be fated to the same mental degeneration and insanity as her father.

Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and the 2001 Tony Award for Best Play. Please be advised that Proof contains language that is adult in nature and is recommended for a mature audience.
