Proof, the Pulitzer and Tony Award winning play, is opening at the Menier next month. The play has a fantastic cast including Mariah Gale, who was excellent in Gruesome Playground Injuries which i saw this week at the Gate Theatre.
From the Menier “Catherine has cared for her father Robert, a renowned mathematician, through his mental illness for the past five years. His ex-student, Hal, discovers a ground-breaking proof in Robert’s office but the question is posed: who is the real author of this brilliant work? Catherine struggles to solve this, and the most perplexing problem of all: how much of her father’s madness – or genius – has she inherited?”
was also made into a movie with Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins, Jake Gyllenhaal and Hope Davis
