The young but guarded Catherine grieves over the loss of her father, a legendary mathematician at the University of Chicago who suffers from heart failure and a quickly deteriorating mental illness. Just as Catherine begins to give into her fear that she, too, might suffer from her father’s condition, Catherine’s older sister Claire returns home to help “settle” family affairs. Hal, one of her father’s old students, starts to poke around the house at the same time, looking for notes and relics of the genius. What Hal discovers in an old speckle-bound notebook brings to light a buried family secret. It tests the sisters’ kinship as well as the romantic feelings growing between Catherine and Hal. This poignant drama about love and reconciliation unfolds on the back porch of a house settled in a suburban university town, that is, like David Auburn’s writing, both simple and elegant.
Proof is presented by special arrangements with Dramatists Play Service Inc., New York.
