Proof is the winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
The play focuses on Catherine, a young woman who has spent years caring for her father, Robert, a brilliant mathematician in his youth, but who in the last five years was unable to function without her help. His recent death has brought into her midst, both her sister, Claire, who wants to take Catherine back to New York with her, and Hal, a former student of Catherine’s father who hopes to find some hint of Robert’s genius among his incoherent scribbling.
All roles are available, and both Equity and non-Equity are welcome to audition. Please note that Snowglobe will be offering an honorarium for for the performers.
Catherine is the daughter of Robert and sister of Claire. Catherine seems to have inherited her father’s talent for math and perhaps his illness.
Claire is Catherine’s older sister. She has worked hard to achieve her successes and has been supporting her father and sister financially for some time.
Robert is the father of Catherine and Claire. He is a retired professor of math at the University of Chicago. Robert left his position when mental illness overtook him.
Hal is a former student of Robert, and still holds a great deal of respect and idolization for him. His apparent intention for coming to the house is to search through Robert’s old notebooks for the sake of mathematics.
