Theater On The Run
3700 South Four Mile Run Drive Arlington
On the eve of her 25th birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, is coping with years spent caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness - or genius - will she inherit?

"...David Auburn's Proof skillfully combines these themes, albeit with a more amiable "Mad Maths" professor and a more volatile but still mathematically-inclined daughter. Peter's Alley Theatre Productions has created a wonderfully personal, intimate staging of Auburn's play in Arlington's Theatre on the Run, well worth the twists and turns you have to take to get there."
