When things are uncertain, we look for ‘Proof’. Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert. His recent death has left her adrift, and attempting to rediscover her independence. Her sister Claire returns after a long absence to take charge of family affairs, but Catherine is intent on fending for herself. Enter Hal, a former student of her father’s, who wishes to enshrine Robert’s genius. Whilst searching through Robert’s 103 notebooks, Hal discovers a family secret that changes everything, and provides more questions than answers.
David Auburn’s award winning play explores the fragility of genius, and the nature of human relationships within families.
