Proof (2015)

Because we don\'t have a choice about what we inherit...

Jan 31st to Feb 7th 2015

Written by David Auburn

Directed by Anne-marie Greene

Because we don't have a choice about what we inherit...

Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert. But when he dies she has more than just grief to deal with: there's her estranged sister, Claire, and Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that Robert left behind. And a further problem: how much of her father's madness or genius will Catherine inherit? In Proof, David Auburn has fashioned an exhilarating and assured play -a subtle and gripping exploration of loss, guilt, discovery, instability, and, ultimately, the elusive nature of truth. Gwyneth Paltrow starred in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play and also in the subsequent film with Anthony Hopkins.
