The Beckwith Theatre is proud to present Proof

The Beckwith Theatre is proud to present Proof, a drama by David Auburn.

Proofis a drama in which Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions, 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?  


Proof won the Tony Award for Best Play in 2001 and also won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama that year, as well as several other awards.
