NOW PLAYING: Cherry Creek Theatre presents PROOF thru 3/25
Cherry Creek Theatre presents David Auburn's Pulitzer Prize-winning PROOF playing now through March 25th. On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness—or genius—will she inherit?
Under the direction of Richard H. Pegg, the cast includes Kate Avallone as Catherine, Michael Bouchard as Hal, Erik Sandvold as Robert and Emily Paton Davies as Claire.
David Auburn's first full-length play, Skyscraper, ran off-Broadway in 1997. His short play, What Do You Believe About The Future? appeared in Harper's Magazine and has since been adapted for the screen. Auburn is best known for his 2000 play PROOF. It won the 2001 Tony Award for Best Play, as well as the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Auburn has adapted it into a film, which was released in 2005. He has also been awarded the Helen Merrill Playwriting Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship. Following Proof, he wrote the screenplay for the movie The Lake House, released by Warner Bros. in 2006. In 2007, he made his directorial debut with the The Girl in the Park, for which he also wrote the screenplay.
Cherry Creek Theatre presents PROOF intriguing audiences now through March 25 at the Shaver-Ramsey Showroom, 2414 East 3rd Ave in Denver, CO.
