See Proof, starring Mariah Gale and Jamie Parker at the Menier Chocolate Factory this spring.
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?
Fresh from a bold, modernised version of Antigone at the National Theatre, director Polly Findlay takes on David Auburn's Pulitzer and Tony-winning 2000 drama about a daughter's attempt to unlock the life and work of her mentally ill mathematician father.
Mariah Gale plays daughter Catherine, with Jamie Parker as her father's former student called Hal. The cast also features Emma Cunniffe and Matthew Marsh, with design by Helen Goddard and lighting from Paul Anderson.
