A brilliant mathematician falls into mental illness, prompting his college-aged daughter to drop everything and become his caregiver. Having given up her education, social life and much of her youth, Catherine must now fight to reclaim her life after giving so much to her father. Can she find herself in love, family and, oddly enough, mathematics?
“Proof” is the story of Catherine and her search for her own life and her own brilliance following her father’s death. Having been the daughter of a genius who was also mad, Catherine fears that she, too, might be brilliant but mad. “Proof” is a thoughtful tale of finding romance, connecting with family, and nurturing your own brand of genius. It features a multiracial cast that includes Nick Fitzgerald as Hal, Erik Hill as Robert, Amy Van Mechelen as Claire and Chevi Chung as Catherine.
“Proof” is by David Auburn and directed by Randy Clark. Auburn is a playwright, screenwriter and theatre director. Movies he has written include “The Lake House” and “The Girl in the Park.” He won the Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award and New York Drama Critics Circle Award for “Proof.”
