Proof
By David Auburn
On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, one of her father’s former students who hopes to find valuable work in the many notebooks her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, 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?
Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play.
For all SCC programs, reservations are not required, but are appreciated. To RSVP email Gerry at gerrymackenziescc@gmail.com
