Proof A play by David Auburn. Directed by Catherine Carr Season 2 2009: 2 June to 20 June Set in Chicago, Proof is a four character play by Pulitzer Prize winning author David Auburn, about Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius suffering from mental illness, who leaves behind a notebook containing proof of a mathematical theorem that mathematicians had thought impossible. Did Robert write the proof, or was it his depressed college drop-out daughter Catherine? As the mystery develops, the play explores issues such as what the link may be between genius and madness and whether either or both can be inherited. A story about human relationships, the play suggests that developing trust and love can be as difficult, and just as uncertain, as establishing the truth of a mathematical proof.
