“Plus the work was beautiful. It’s streamlined: no wasted moves, like a ninety-five-mile-an-hour fastball. It’s just…elegant.” So Hal describes Robert, the brilliant mathematician who suffered severe mental illness for much of his life. Robert is also Catherine’s father who took care of him full time during the last few years of his life. In the midst of a family death and a budding love interest, Catherine struggles to determine what parts of her father’s genius and/or illness she has inherited. Proof is a beautifully delicate play that will be intimately staged by New City Players at Empire Stage.

Proof marks the first production of New City Players’ second official season (followed by Twelfth Night running July 6-23 and True West running August 10-27 both at The Vanguard. Visit newcityplayers.org for more details). Proof will be directed by Producing Artistic Director, Timothy Mark Davis. It will star Jeffrey Bruce, Johnny Contini, Erica Rose Dade, and Krystal Valdes. The production will be held at Empire Stage (1140 N Flagler Drive, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304). Performances run June 1-18. Tickets are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors, and $20 for students and can be purchased at newcityplayers.org.

“Proof is a play about legacy, inheritance, and trust.” says director Timothy Mark Davis. “It’s also a play about the struggles between parents and children, particularly when mental illness is involved. I hope it reminds us that our longing for proof, in any given area of life, can sometimes only come in the form of trust.”
