This spring, the City Island Theater Group is proud to present David Auburn’s acclaimed drama PROOF.
Often called a modern masterpiece, PROOF premiered on Broadway in the fall of 2000 and went on to play 917 performances winning the 2001 TONY AWARD for Best Play and the 2001 PULITZER PRIZE for Best Drama. This remarkable play combines elements of mystery and surprise with old-fashioned storytelling to provide a compelling evening of theater.
PROOF is the story of Catherine, a troubled young woman, who has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Catherine, a genius herself, must deal with her most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness or genius will she inherit?
To provide a more enjoyable theater experience, they are happy to say that free valet parking is available this weekend to all audience members at “Sammy’s Lot 3” (directly across from Buckley Street) on Friday & Sunday only. Saturday night is street parking. Please allow enough time to get to the Island and find parking.
