Flickering Light Productions presents PROOF at the Havana Theatre, 1212 Commercial Drive, from February 18th to February 28th. PROOF is the story of a young woman named Catherine. She is the daughter of Robert, a brilliant mathematician who misplaces both his brilliance and his sanity in his later years. Catherine, who is a budding mathematician herself, lives in her father’s shadow. Catherine gives up her schooling and her most creatively productive years in order to take care of her father. After her father’s death, a former student of her father’s comes to examine his papers, hoping to find valuable material in his notebooks. Catherine instantly distrusts his motives. Her sister Claire, questioning Catherine’s mental health, wants to move her from Chicago to New York.
This play by David Auburn is a compelling human drama. He reveals how fragile our hold on reality is while at the same time reminding us that finding trust and love is even more difficult than discovering truth. PROOF begins Wednesday, February 18th at Havana Theatre and runs until February 28th. Tickets are available in advance from Eventbrite from $19. Please note this play contains strong language and is not recommended for children.
