The Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club presents David Auburn’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play: PROOF. The dysfunctional yet brilliant Catherine struggles on the eve of her birthday, still haunted by the recent death of her father, Robert, a remarkable mathematician driven to insanity. In life, the two were connected by the beauty of mathematics--its constancy and consistency serving as a stabilizing factor in each of their lives. Catherine grapples with not only the loss of her father, but also a fear of inheriting his unstable nature--wondering whether or not they are connected by insanity as well.
