Proof - Theatrical Niche
Friday 28 September, 8.15pm
Theatrical Niche bring to the Overcroft Theatre at Kentwell the TONY Award Winning, PULITZER DRAMA Award Winning:
'PROOF' BY DAVID AUBURN
A heart-breaking, incredible work on the inscrutable equations of mind and heart by American Playwright David Auburn. It takes on the themes of Mental Health, Gender bias, and the Incorruptible Bond between Father and Daughter.
When Mathematical genius Robert passes away, he leaves his daughter Catherine struggling with the same mental health demons - but that's not the only fatherly asset she inherits...
As young maths student Hal investigates Robert's last great work, he finds that things are not as straightforward as they appear. Catherine's sister also intervenes, leading the family on a uncomfortable journey of discovery and nostalgia.
Proof was adapted for screen in 2005, and starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins.
The play will be performed in the Overcroft at Kentwell, which is located on the first floor of the building. There is no lift. The play will be performed in a version of 'in-the-round'. The play will begin at 8.15pm promptly.
