Proof is the story of enigmatic young woman, her manipulative sister, their brilliant father, and an unexpected suitor. They are all pieces of the puzzle in the search for the truth behind a mysterious mathematical proof. The young but guarded Catherine grieves over the loss of her father, a famous mathematician who had become a legend at the local university for solving complicated proofs and for suffering from dementia. Just as Catherine begins to give in to her fear that she, too, might suffer from her father’s condition, Catherine’s older sister Claire returns home to help “settle” family affairs, and Hal, their father’s former student, discovers an old notebook that brings to light a buried family secret. This poignant drama about love and reconciliation unfolds on the back porch of a house in a suburban university town.

Mr. Green, an 86-year-old widower living in Manhattan, is almost hit by a car driven by young corporate executive Ross Gardiner. Found guilty of reckless driving, Ross is ordered to spend the next six months making weekly visits to Mr. Green, who, after his wife’s death, has retreated from life, letting himself and his apartment go to ruin. Ross is lonely too, but instinctively nurturing. The story starts as a comedy about two people who resent being forced together but develops into a gripping and poignant drama as family secrets are revealed and old wounds are opened. This beloved play, one of the most produced in the world over the past 25 years, has reached millions of theater-goers on six continents.
