"Proof," the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning show from David Auburn, begins on the eve of Catherine's twenty-fifth birthday. She is a troubled young woman, who has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician in their Chicago home. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions and allure 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?
"Proof" focuses on how family draws us together and pushes us apart, and discusses the stigma around mental illness in a real and honest way.
Audition Info: Sides will be provided at auditions. A general knowledge of the play and characters is recommended.
Catherine (25) - A young woman who inherited much of her father's mathematical genius, and, she fears, his "instability" as well; she gave up her life and schooling to take care of her father until his recent death.
Claire (Mid 20s/Early 30s)- Catherine's older sister, a practical and business-minded woman who has been comfortably successful in her work and relationships. She left Robert and Catherine behind, distancing herself from the run-down family home of her youth. She left the family to make a new life for herself in New York City.
