By David Auburn

Directed by Bruce G. Bradley

After the death of her brilliant but unstable father, a young woman must deal with her own volatile emotions as she examines the extraordinary mathematical works her father left behind. She must come to terms with the possibility that her father has passed along both his genius and his madness to his daughter.

"Variety" describes the play as "a wonderfully funny [and] ambitiously constructed work", while "New York Magazine" says that Proof is "one you won't want to miss."
