Theater Production: Proof

March 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$10.00

The theater production Proof is written by David Auburn and directed by Rachel Ropella ’20.

Proof revolves around 25 year old Catherine, who has spent the past few years in her childhood home taking care of her father, Robert, a once brilliant mathematician. In the wake of his death, Catherine‚Äôs older sister and one of Robert’s last Ph.D. students return to the house and uncover a groundbreaking mathematical proof. When the authorship of the proof is contested, relationships become strained as Catherine must grapple with her grief as well as her grip on reality as she tries to prove the authenticity of the work. Proof examines familial sacrifice, legacy in academia, and what we inherit from our parents.

To reserve tickets call 507-786-3332.

Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
