Masquerader's Fall Play
The Masqueraders present
David Auburn's Proof
(winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize)
Catherine's father Robert was a mathematician famous for his proofs and for his mental instability. Catherine shares his brilliance, and fears she may also share his instability as well. Can she develop her own voice on her own terms amid such a heavy cloud of doubt? Her sister Claire wants to "look after" her, but that could mean a loss of Catherine's own place and identity. And Hal, a former student of Robert, makes some discoveries of his own: he discovers what might be a brilliant proof, and he discovers what might be love for Catherine. Catherine is smart and capable of love, but in a man's world, and full of doubt, skepticism, and fear, will that be enough?
