Proof centers on Catherine, a young woman who has been torn between her own life and ambitions and caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. After his death, her life is complicated by the arrival of her estranged sister Claire and the burgeoning romance with Hal, a former student of her father who hopes to find valuable work in the notebooks her father left behind. What he discovers presents a puzzling question regarding who authored an amazing piece of work, testing the relationships of the sisters and of Claire and Hal as the participants and the audience arrive at the truth.
This show won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play.
