Proof

November 13 - 23, 2014

By David Auburn
Directed by Danielle Dyksterhouse (BU ’15)
Featuring Peoria guest actor Charles Brown

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and The Tony Award for Best Play

Romance, mystery and mathematics combine in this acclaimed, wonderfully funny American play. Catherine, a gifted young mathematician postponed her education to care for her brilliant but unstable father, an eminent math legend. Now re-starting her life, she struggles with a potential new love, the arrival of her estranged sister, and the discovery of a mysterious notebook that forces her to ask how much of her father’s genius—or madness—she has inherited.

“A compelling evening of theatre . . .a smart and passionate play of ideas”--NY Daily New

PROOF will be the first mainstage season production ever to be directed by a BU theatre undergrad – the remarkable Danielle Dyksterhouse.
