What’s On (Edmonton): Proof – Walterdale Theatre

Walterdale Theatre presents
the Tony Award winning (2001) play
Proof
by David Auburn

Catherine has just lost her mathematician father after a long bout of mental illness, when one of his students comes across a mathematical formula that could have been authored by him. On her journey to try to prove the work to be her father’s, Catherine struggles with relationships and her fear of becoming mentally ill as her father had.

“At first glance, Proof is a play about mathematics and madness, but it is so much more than that. It’s also about worrying about whether you will make the right choice in trusting another person. It’s about that complicated dynamic between siblings who have had a very different relationship with their parent. It’s about falling in love and risking intimacy. Like all good equations, it’s about relationships between the different variables. It’s an elegantly written play where all the characters are smart, and fully developed and flawed without being villains. If we’ve done our job right, you will recognize your family in this play, and you will recognize yourself.”

– Kristen M. Finlay, Director
