Description

A return of our popular 2020 production of Proof. Proof was planned to perform in Philadelphia in May 2020 but due to the pandemic, we presented the show virtually. We are now bringing the show back in-person at the Bluver at the Drake in Philadelphia, June 3-5 2022!

About Proof

How do we care for aging and sick parents?  How do we deal with the death of a loved one?  What do you do when you realize your life is stuck?

Proof explores how two sisters deal with the slow deterioration of their father, after mental illness results in sickness and ultimately, death.  A play written by David Auburn in 2001, Proof was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. In 2005, the story was remade into a movie starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins, Hope Davis and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The late theatre critic, John Simon, praised Proof as a play where “All four [characters] - whether loving, hating, encouraging or impeding one another - are intensely alive, complex, funny, human.”
