MBC THEATRE: Proof by David Auburn Fletcher Collins Theatre in Deming Fine Arts Center Directed by MBC Professor of Theatre Terry Southerington ’72 The undergraduate theatre program presented Proof, the 2001 Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama and Tony Award winner for Best Play, as the final full-length play of its 2012– 13 season. The plot follows Catherine, a scholar who leaves her own mathematical studies to care for her father, a math genius who has descended into mental illness. Upon his death, his ex-graduate student Hal discovers a significant new proof among her father’s otherwise rambling notes. Catherine must deal with a burgeoning relationship, a domineering sister, and her fear of following in her father’s footsteps while she attempts to stay in control.
