“Proof delves into deeply emotional problems that arise from mental illness battling with true genius,” says F. Scott Keel, director of Rarely Theatre’s inaugural production of David Auburn’s play. The Tony Award-winning drama examines the story of a young woman haunted by the mathematical genius of her father while grappling with a mental illness she fears she has inherited. “It peels back the many layers involved in ‘keeping up appearances’ and reveals the raw, battered life of the average human,” adds Keel in a press release. Proof runs March 20-30 at BeBe Theatre, Thursday through Sunday, at 7:30 p.m. $15/$18. differentstrokesavl.com. Photo courtesy of the theater company
