Proof by David Auburn

An English-language production of Auburn's Pulitzer-winning play about a young woman trying to cope with the death of her mathematician father.

This play is the Geneva English Drama Society's first production of the 2015-2016 Season.

Catherine, a brilliant but troubled young woman, is trying to cope with her father’s death. For the last five years she has devoted herself to this mentally ill man who was once a ground-breaking mathematician.

Now, on the eve of her 25th birthday and her father’s funeral, she must deal with her own volatile emotions, the arrival of her estranged sister, and the attentions of one of her father’s former students who hopes to find something valuable in the great man’s notebooks.

Over the days that follow, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious proof draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: how much of her father’s genius or madness has she inherited?

Director: Frances Favre

Cast: Gary Bird, Diala Bostan, Jaimie Guerra and Colin Paterson.

I went to see the opening night of this last night and I must say it was truly a captivating and enthralling show from start to finish with brilliant staging and great acting throughout. It is great to see the Geneva English Drama Society once again putting on a show of search quality, Long May It Continue? I can not recommend this show enough, a wonderful evening of theater. It only runs till Saturday so make sure you don't miss it!!
