THEATRE: PROOF

 

$39 full, $35 concession + booking fees
Sat 21 July 8pm
The Lecture Hall, Sackville St

When things are uncertain, we look for proof.

Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert. His recent death has left her adrift, and attempting to rediscover her independence. Her sister Claire returns after a long absence to take charge of family affairs, but Catherine is intent on fending for herself. Enter Hal, a former student of her father’s, who wishes to enshrine Robert’s genius. While searching through Robert’s 103 notebooks, Hal discovers a family secret that changes everything, and provides more questions than answers.

David Auburn’s award-winning play (Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award) explores the fragility of genius and family relationships.
