West Palm Beach's only resident professional theatre, Palm Beach Dramaworks, concludes its spring season with David Auburn's Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Proof" on Friday, May 25th (8PM) at the Don & Ann Brown Theatre(201 Clematis Street). Special priced preview performances are slated for May 23rd & 24th with regularly scheduled curtain times through June 17th.

Set in Chicago, Proof explores the struggles of the daughter of a brilliant, but mentally disturbed mathematician. Preparing for his funeral, Catherine tries to come to grips with her possible inheritance - his insanity or his genius. Proof is a story of human relationships and how the uncertainty of love can be just as challenging as the uncertainty of a mathematical proof.

Producing Artistic Director, William Hayes will direct the production featuring Cliff Burgess, Kenneth Kay, Katherine Michelle Tanner and Sarah Grace Wilson.The play will feature scenery designed by Michael Amico, costumes designed by Erin Amico, lights designed by Ron Burns and sound designed by Rich Szczublewski.
