Sul Ross State University's Theatre Program is proud to announce their next production: "Proof" by David Auburn. Opening March 22, "Proof" tells the story of a mathematical family torn apart by mental illness as it questions the true authorship of a revolutionary proof. Catherine, played by Missy Embrey, is struggling with the recent death of her father, and the thought that she may not be as mentally stable as she once thought. Catherine's sister Claire, played by Ashley Page, has returned to town after a five year absence to take care of her sister who spent years helping their unstable father. Timothy Wright plays the girls' father Robert, who struggles to grasp reality in a world full of mathematics. Everything is thrown into chaos when Harold Dobbs, played by Miguel Peña, shows up and starts sorting through Robert's vast array of notebooks. Harold finds an incredibly important proof hidden upstairs, which if proven correct, will provide a revolutionary turn within the mathematics community.
"Proof" is directed by Dr. Michelle Selk, and will perform March 22-24 and March 29-31 in the Studio Theatre of the Francois Fine Arts Building. Evening performances are held Friday and Saturday at 8:15p.m. and Sunday matinees are at 2:00p.m. For advanced ticket sales please visit www.sulross.edu/theatre, or contact the Fine Arts and Communication Office at Sul Ross State University (432) 837-8218.
