FTC presents…PROOF

13 Nov

Written by DAVID AUBURN
Directed by DANA FLOBERG
Produced by BECCA KAPLAN and HANNAH BROWN

Proof focuses on Catherine, a young woman who has spent years caring for her father, Robert, a brilliant mathematician in his youth who was later unable to function without her help. His death has brought into her midst both her sister, Claire, who wants to take Catherine back to New York with her, and Hal, a former student of Catherine’s father who hopes to find some hint of Robert’s genius among his incoherent scribblings. Catherine has inherited at least a part of her father’s brilliance — and perhaps some of his instability as well. As she and Hal become attracted to each other, they push at the edges of each other’s knowledge, considering not only the unpredictability of genius but also the human instinct toward love and trust. Proof is the winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
