Carrollwood Players to Present PROOF 11/10-11/19

By: Nov. 09, 2016

With a special Thursday night opening, November 10, Carrollwood Players brings to the stage Proof, a touching, compassionate Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning drama written by David Auburn.

Featuring the talents of Greg Thompson, Laura E. Gonzalez, Victoria Ann, and Sam Burke, Proof is a performance that will haunt you forever. This compassionately written play tells the story of Catherine, a troubled young woman coming to terms with possibility of not only inheriting her mathematician father's brilliance, but his instability and madness, as well.

"What I liked best about this play (was) working with this remarkable group of actors. We hope that the audience can expect moving performances of this funny and tender script," said director, Clareann Despain.

On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, who has spent years her adult life caring for her father, must deal with her own volatile emotions and long denied feelings and fears, following his death.

These feelings are intensified by the arrival of Claire, an estranged older sister and by the attentions of Hal, her father's former student, who hopes to find something of value in the hundreds of notebooks her father left behind.

Over the long weekend that follows, Catherine is left wondering if she too is doomed to cross the thin line - how much of her father's madness-or genius-will she inherit?
