Product description

Review

"Proof . . . a play about scientists whose science matter less than their humanity . . . All four [characters]--whether loving, hating, encouraging or impeding one another--are intensely alive, complex, funny human."--John Simon, "New York"

"An exhilarating and assured new play . . . accessible and compelling as a detective story."--Bruce Weber, "The New York Times"

"Auburn has taken on some biggies here; what the link may be between genius and mental instability, why it is that lives get stuck, and how elusive the truth can be . . . ["Proof's"] level of accomplishment and the realness of its characters show that Auburn has both depth and a voice."--"The New Yorker"
