This compassionate and compelling play won both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony award for best play in 2001. Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she faces 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?
In addition to the Pulitzer and Tony, Proof also won a myriad of awards like the Drama Critics Circle, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, and the Lucille Lortel Awards. Don’t miss the chance to see 2001’s most honored play at Redwood Curtain.
