Mariah Gale stars as Catherine in a new production of David Auburn’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony-winning play Proof at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
Directed by Polly Findlay, Proof will also star Jamie Parker as Hal, Matthew Marsh as Robert and Emma Cunniffe as Claire.
Proof is the story of Catherine has cared for her father Robert, a renowned mathematician, through his mental illness for the past five years. His ex-student, Hal, discovers a ground-breaking proof in Robert’s office but the question is posed: who is the real author of this brilliant work? Catherine struggles to solve this, and the most perplexing problem of all: how much of her father’s madness – or genius – has she inherited?
