Proof is the Studio Theatre’s final play of the season coming up May 6-9 and May 13-16. There will also be a private showing of Proof, hosted by the Investors Group on May 12.
The cast of this play about family entanglements includes Jay Goddard as Robert, a brilliant but unstable mathematician; Bobbie-Jo Macnair as Catherine, Robert’s daughter; Becky Strickland as Claire, Catherine’s estranged sister; and Dan Patterson playing Hal, a former student of Robert’s.
On the eve of her 25th birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, 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 Robert left behind.
Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: how much of her father’s madness — or — genius will Catherine inherit?
Proof will also be entered in the Central Interior Zone Festival which was originally scheduled to take place in Prince George but will now take place in Williams Lake at the end of may.
