The proof is really in the ‘proof’
Proof, is a Theatre production presented by FREEFALL Productions and written by David Auburn, and it is without doubt a must see performance as the Play takes us into the world of a young lady named Catherine.
This theatre production is a film adaptation which starred Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins and Jake Gyllenhall in 2005 and first thrilled Sydney audiences in an STC production and it is now showing at the New Theatre in Newtown!
After spending years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Catherine is left to pick up the pieces of her life when he dies. And as events begin to happen without her father, she begins to feel that she might have inherited at least a part of her father's genius and perhaps some of his instability as well.
Catherine begins to be caught up with her new-found connection with Hal, a former student to her father who hopes to find some genius in the 103 notebooks of incoherent scribblings that Catherine's father left behind.
After the death of her father Claire, sister to Catherine, reappears in Catherine's life as she is forced to question how much she can actually trust those closest to her.
Auburn touched the audience with a brilliant production which included an array of emotions, humour as well as a few 'jaw-dropping' moments.
This performance is a passionate as well as intelligent story about a family's struggle and uncompromising nature of genius and mental illness which combined the elements of mystery, surprise and humour.
