Nameless Media and Productions Theatre (NMP Theatre) will be presenting performances of Proof by David Auburn at the Electric Cultural Center in Fushimi, Nagoya next month.
Proof was first produced in 2000 and the play went on to have an award-winning run on Broadway. The 2005 film version of Proof, directed by John Madden, starred Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins.
The play has four characters Catherine, Hal, Robert and Claire and the plot unfolds over a weekend following the death of Robert, a brilliant but mentally unstable mathematician. His daughter Catherine, who has cared for her father during his illness, is joined at the house by her estranged sister Claire and Hal, a former student of her father's, with whom she becomes romantically involved.
The four parts in the NMP Theatre Production are played by Irene Dewald, Michael Kruse, Jessica A. Robison and Ritchie Croan.
