TheatreWorks New Milford will open their production ofProof, a drama by by David Auburn.
One of the most acclaimed plays in contemporary theater, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Proof is a witty and compassionate exploration of a young woman’s journey of self-discovery.
Having spent years caring for her father, a brilliant mathematician who suffered from devastating mental deterioration, Catherine wonders whether she’s now embodying his complex legacy…equal parts genius and instability. Proof was developed at George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick, New Jersey, during the 1999 Next Stage Series of new plays.
The play premiered Off-Broadway in May 2000, and transferred to Broadway in October 2000. It won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play.
This production is under the direction of Frank Arcaro of Roxbury and produced by Sonnie Osborne of New Milford. The cast includes Anna Fagan of Stamford, Daniel Basiletti of Brewster, NY, Carey Van Hollen of Southbury and Viv Berger of Middlebury.
