Tucson, AZ – January 19, 2017

TUCSON, AZ – Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama & the Tony Award for Best Play, Proof follows Catherine, daughter of a brilliant but mentally disturbed mathematician, as she tries to come to grips with how much of her father’s madness or genius she will inherit after his recent death. The return of her controlling sister, who wishes to settle their father’s affairs, & the flirtations of Hal, a former graduate student of her late father’s, complicate matters. After Hal discovers a groundbreaking mathematical proof among the late mathematician’s papers, the struggle is on to find out who really wrote it.
