Synopsis: Proof is the Pulitzer Prize & Tony award winning drama by David Auburn, directed by Tess Malis Kincaid. Proof, is a passionate story about the bond between fathers and daughters, the power of love, and the nature of genius. Catherine, a troubled young woman, has sacrificed years of her life as the sole caretaker for her mentally unstable, but renowned mathematician father. On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday following her father’s death, the arrival of her estranged sister, and the romantic attentions of her father’s former student, she is forced to confront her own volatile emotions. A burgeoning romance and mysterious discovery make Catherine question: How much of her father’s mental illness and genius will she inherit?

REVIEWS

“True Colors manages to find some new layers of meaning in “Proof.” Whether it’s new to you or quite familiar, it’s worth checking out.” AJC Review

This is a well-paced, beautiful production, presented by a cast that surprisingly makes math seem sexy, that gives madness its monstrous “due,” that underscores the value of accomplishment.” – Atlanta Theater Buzz Review

“Each of the actors does a great job, and the set by Moriah and Isabel Curley-Clay is absolutely magnificent.” – Atlanta Art Scene Review

“…an assured play that is as accessible and compelling as a detective story.” – New York Times
Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play.
