FALL DRAMA: 
“Proof”

By David Auburn

When a ground-breaking mathematical proof is discovered among the belongings of a recently deceased “mad-genius” professor, questions are raised about the authorship: Did he write it in a moment of sanity, or was written by his caretaker-daughter?  And if she possesses his same genius, will she also inherit his madness?  Winner of the Pulitzer Prize.
