The discovery of a mysterious notebook forces a troubled young woman to face her father’s death and whether she will inherit his genius or his mental illness in David Auburn’s Pulitzer-prize winning drama, “Proof”. Performances are Oct. 8-11 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 11-12 at 2 p.m. in the Lone Star College-Kingwood Black Box.
Directed by Eric C. Skiles and designed by Kalliope Vlahos, this production chronicles the story of Catherine, the daughter of a brilliant but mentally disturbed mathematician, recently deceased, who tries to come to grips with her father’s famous legacy and possibly genetic insanity. Complicating matters are one of her father's ex-students who wants his research papers and her estranged sister who shows up to help settle his affairs.
The cast features four LSC-Kingwood theatre majors: Jordan Everett (Catherine); Thomas Madison (Robert); Sandra Peck (Claire) and Eric C. Sandell (Hal).
“We are thrilled to be opening the 2014-2015 season with this theatrical gem,” said Eric Skiles, artistic director of theatre and professor of theatre and humanities. “It is a wildly popular script for colleges and universities; the Kingwood community will really enjoy it.”
