Catherine, the twenty-something daughter of gifted, ground-breaking professor and mathematician, has just laid her father Robert to rest. Hal, a devoted student of Robert’s, searches through his the professor’s files hoping to find something usable so that his mentor's final years won't have been a complete waste. During the course of his research, Hal discovers a pad of paper filled with profound, cutting-edge calculations. He incorrectly assumes the work was Robert's. In truth, Catherine wrote the mathematic proof. No one believes her. So now she must provide proof that the proof belongs to her.
Proof by David Auburn premiered on Broadway in October 2000. It received national attention, earning the Drama Desk Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and the Tony Award for Best Play.
