DAVID AUBURN’S PROOF AT VITERBO NOVEMBER 10-12 AND 17-19
LA CROSSE, Wis. – The Viterbo University production of David Auburn’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play Proof takes the La Croix Black Box Theatre stage Thursday-Saturday Nov.10-12 and Thursday-Saturday Nov. 17-19.
Proof is a compelling new play that explores the fragile nature of life and love, the mysteries of mathematics, and the perplexingly thin line between genius and madness. The plot revolves around Catherine, the daughter of a once-brilliant mathematician. Caring for her aging father, Catherine is at once attracted and repelled by her father's genius. She is torn between returning to New York with her sister, and helping an old student of her father salvage something meaningful from the stacks of notes her father kept. Falling in love with this student, Catherine learns how much she and her father may have in common.
Performance times are 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center. General admission tickets are $9. For more information call the Fine Arts Center Box Office at 796-3100
