Allen Contemporary Theatre is proud to present the play "Proof", running from August 18th - September 3rd. Performances are Friday/Saturday evenings at 8 PM and Sunday afternoons at 3 PM. Tickets are available online at www.AllenContemporaryTheatre.net/tickets.

The play "Proof" was a winner of the 2001 Tony Award for Best Play and Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. "Proof" centers around Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius in his fifties and professor at the University of Chicago, and Catherine's struggle with mathematical genius and mental illness. Catherine had cared for her father through a lengthy mental illness. Upon Robert's death, his ex-graduate student Hal discovers a paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers in Robert's office. The title refers both to that proof and to the play's central question: Can Catherine prove the proof's authorship? Along with demonstrating the proof's authenticity, Catherine also finds herself in a relationship with Hal. Throughout, the play explores Catherine's fear of following in her father's footsteps, both mathematically and mentally and her desperate attempts to stay in control.

Allen Contemporary Theatre's production is directed by Sara Jones, stage managed by Emily Cole, and features the following actors:

Catherine - Karina Barrett

Claire - Hanna Lynn

Robert - Jim Bloomingdale

Hal - Andy Beckman

 

"Proof" is rated PG-13 for adult themes and profanity. There are flashing lights in one scene.
