Here is your chance to get smart at the Lofte! Written by David Auburn, “Proof” is the winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize as well as the Tony Award for Best Play. Some of you may have seen the 2005 film which starred Gwyneth Paltrow and Sir Anthony Hopkins.
The story revolves around Catherine, played by Kaylee Roach of Louisville. This character is the daughter of a brilliant, but mentally disturbed mathematician who is recently deceased. She tries to come to grips with her possible inheritance: his insanity. Complicating matters is one of her father’s ex-students (played by Josh Smith of Omaha) who wants to search through his old papers and her estranged sister (Pamela Chase of Omaha) to comes to help settle family affairs. When the student finds cutting-edge calculations, can Catherine provide the proof that the work is hers? Ken Snyder of Elmwood plays the father, Robert.
The show opens Saturday, August 29 and runs for the next three weekends through September 13.
