This Emotional Tale of a Genius Mathematician and His Daughter Will Touch Your Heart

Since 1963, Slidell Little Theatre has been bringing together the entire community for unforgettable performances filled with music, drama and laughter. Keeping the entertainment alive, Slidell Little Theatre is proud to present “Proof”, Pulitzer Prize-winning play by David Auburn, on March 6th!
“Proof” set in Hyde Park tells the tale of genius mathematician and University of Chicago professor Robert, who is struggling with mental illness, leaving his fiercely brilliant yet emotionally fragile daughter Catherine to pick up the pieces of her life.

Caught between a new-found connection with one of Robert's former students and the reappearance of her sister, Claire, Catherine's world becomes increasingly unstable. As she struggles to find herself amid her father's world of tantalizing secrets and hidden complexities, she is forced to face the possibility of inheriting both her father's creative genius and his terrifying mental illness.

David Auburn is a Tony Award– and Pulitzer Prize–winning American playwright, screenwriter, and director best known for “Proof”, which he also adapted for the screen, and for the screenplay for the film The Lake House. Auburn has been awarded the Helen Merrill Playwriting Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship, as well as a New York Critic’s Circle Award.
