Catherine’s having a rough week. Her father Robert, a gifted but troubled mathematics professor, has died. While her older sister Claire returns to sort out his affairs and her father’s protégé Hal searches her father’s papers for work of unpublished brilliance, Catherine struggles to solve the most perplexing problem of all: how much of her father’s madness -- or genius -- she has inherited.

PROOF won the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play in 2001.
