The Theatre Group at SBCC Presents PROOF, Beginning Tonight
The Theatre Group at SBCC will present David Auburn's Tony Award-winning play, PROOF, directed by R. Michael Gros, as the final production of its 70th Anniversary Season, tonight, April 13, through April 30, 2016 in the Jurkowitz Theatre.
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? Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play.
