“Proof combines elements of mystery and surprise with old-fashioned storytelling to provide a compelling evening of theatre … [PROOF is a] smart and compassionate play of ideas.” – NY Daily News.

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.” – NY Observer.

“[A] wonderfully funny … ambitiously constructed work… ” – Variety.


This uplifting play tells the story of Catherine, a troubled young woman, who 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, a former student of her father’s who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that 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?

**This play contains some strong language and is not recommended for children under 13.
