Proof won playwright David Auburn a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award in 2001 for its powerful portrayal of the thin line between genius and insanity, and now Oceanside Theatre Company brings it to the stage in an intimate production in which you are seated on-stage for the show. In the play, a groundbreaking mathematical proof turns up in the attic of a recently-deceased math genius, leaving Catherine, his troubled adult daughter, to track down its origins and prove its authorship. This moving drama explores Catherine's fear that she inherited her father's madness/genius, and her desperate attempts to stay in control -- despite the complications of a budding romance with one of her father's students and the unplanned arrival of her long-estranged sister. The New York Daily News called the play "rich and compelling ... full of life, laughter and hope." Set in Chicago, the play chronicles the discovery of self identity through intellectual and emotional challenges and explores the power of love to help us reach our true potential.
