Proof is a highly acclaimed drama that has earned a remarkable number of awards since its Broadway opening in 2001 including the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Tony award for Best Play, the Drama Desk award for Outstanding Play, as well as New York Drama Critics Best American Play.

It is a wonderfully compassionate and knowing play about a young woman who, on the death of her father, must sort out and deal with a number of long denied feelings and fears. Her father was a brilliant mathematician who crossed the thin line from genius to insanity several years earlier, leaving his daughter 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 and that she may be fated to the same mental degeneration and insanity as her father. In a dazzling series of scenes, David Auburn gradually reveals and embellishes this situation, which is exacerbated by the presence of the girl’s older sister, and a former student of her father’s who she finds attractive, but who may only be out to further his own career.
