David Auburn’s award winning play, Proof, starts the year at Edmonds Driftwood Players

Saturday, December 26, 2015

Edmonds Driftwood Players’ next production in their Theatre of Intriguing Possibilities series is Proof by David Auburn, directed by Rick Wright, at the Wade James Theatre January 14-24, 2016.

A Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play, Proof focuses on Catherine, a troubled young woman, who 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 surrounding the arrival of her estranged sister, and the attentions of her father’s former student who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father 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 -- did she inherit?

According to director Rick Wright, the underlying theme of the play is “trust ... or the lack thereof.” From the original performances on Broadway, the NY Observer wrote about the play, "Proof surprises us with its aliveness…Mr. Auburn takes pleasure in knowledge … At the same time, he is unshowily fresh and humane, and he has written a lovely play."

The cast of Edmonds Driftwood Players’ Proof is Justine Scott, Jordan Fermstad, Jen Makenas and Eric Bischoff. All incredibly talented actors who have captured their roles in this stirring play beautifully.
