This spring, the City Island Theater Group is proud to present David Auburn’s acclaimed drama PROOF.
Often called a modern masterpiece, PROOF premiered on Broadway in the fall of 2000 and went on to play 917 performances winning the 2001 TONY AWARD for Best Play and the 2001 PULITZER PRIZE for Best Drama. This remarkable play combines elements of mystery and surprise with old-fashioned storytelling to provide a compelling evening of theater.
PROOF is the story of Catherine, a troubled young woman, who has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Catherine, a genius herself, must deal with her most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness or genius will she inherit?
PROOF stars CITG newcomer Taliesen Rose as Catherine with CITG favorites Kevin Gordon as Robert, Elizabeth Paldino as Claire and Denis Zepeda as Hal. With direction by Nina Gabriele-Cuva, PROOF promises to be a memorable evening of great theater on City Island.
PROOF premieres on April 27th and will run for 6 performances (4/27, 4/28, 5/3, 5/4, 5/5 @ 8:00 p.m. and 4/29 @ 3:00 p.m.) only!
