“Proof” opens on 5 September
David Auburn's Pulitzer Prize-winner, Proof, is the beautifully crafted story of Catherine's struggle to find her next step in life after the death of her maths genius father, Robert .
Directed by Tanya Piejus for Stagecraft Theatre.
While she wrestles with her overbearing sister Claire's plans for her future and the attentions of young mathematician Hal , she worries how much of her father's ability - and his instability - she has inherited. Only the secret locked away in her father's desk drawer holds the answer.
"Proof surprises us with its aliveness... Mr Auburn takes pleasure in knowledge... At the same time, he is unshowily fresh and humane, and he has written a lovely play."
