Proof by David Auburn
Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert. Her older sister Claire is sure that it hasn't been the best thing for either of them.  Hal has tremendous respect for Robert and feelings for Catherine.  One notebook proves to be the tipping point for all of them.


Directed by Marc Beaudin

Proof won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony for Best Play in 2001.

The  Blue  Slipper  Theatres  production  of  Proof  by  David  Auburn  hits  the  boards  on  Friday,  October  5.  Winner  of  the  Pulitzer  Prize  for  Drama  and  the  Tony  Award  for  Best  Play,  Proof is  a  passionate  and  sharply  witty  play  about  the  nature  of  genius  and  madness,  father/daughter  relationships  and  the  risks  and  redemption  of  love.  It  examines  the  dual  meaning  of  proof  both  as  mathematical  formula  and  the  search  for  a  basis  of  belief    in  family,  in  lovers,  and  mostly,  in  ones  own  mind  and  heart.  In  a  review  of  its  Broadway  premiere,  Thomas  Burke  calls  Proof,  a  play  you'll  remember,  which  will  haunt  you  forever.

Marc  Beaudin  returns  to  the  Blue  Slipper  for  his  sixth  production  as  director.  He  has  worked  in  theatre  professionally  for  20  years  as  a  director,  scenic  designer  and  technical  director  at  venues  ranging  from  unheated  warehouses,  historic  opera  houses  and  art  galleries  to  a  1500-seat,  state-of-the-art  theatre.  Directing  favorites  include  Macbeth  (with  The  303),  Amadeus  (with  Pit  &  Balcony  Theatre  Co.),  Dying  City  (with  Caldera  Theatre  Co.)  and  the  Blue  Slippers  productions  of  Dracula;  Frankenstein,  Inc;  Lion  in  Winter  and  Chekovs  Squirtgun.  The  Blue  Slippers  intimate  space  is  the  perfect  venue  for  this  intimate  play,  says  Beaudin.  The  pathos,  nuance  and  humor  of  Auburns  words,  in  the  hands  of  this  immensely  talented  cast,  come  alive  in  a  way  that  would  be  diffused  by  the  distances  of  a  larger  theatre.

The  cast  of  Proof  features  Todd  Hoberecht  as  Robert,  a  genius  mathematician  who  suffers  a  debilitating  mental  illness;  Finn  Ferguson  as  Catherine,  his  daughter  who  may  have  inherited  his  genius,  but  worries  she  has  inherited  his  psychotic  disorder  as  well;  Jesse  Lagos  as  Hal,Roberts  adoring  former  student  who  hopes  to  discover  a  final  mathematical  proof  in  one  of  Roberts  103  notebooks;  and  Aya  Rordam  as  Claire,  the  older  sister  of  Catherine  who  arrives  from  New  York  to  make  sure  Catherine  gets  the  help  Claire  believes  she  desperately  needs.  

The  drama/comedy  runs  about  two  hours,  with  a  15-minute  intermission,  and  contains  adult  language  and  themes.
