Summary: One of the most acclaimed plays of the 2000 Broadway season, Proof explores the unknowability of love as much as it does the mysteries of mathematics.

On the eve of her 25th birthday, Catherine, a young woman who has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert, must deal not only with his death but with the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire, and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks Robert left behind.

As Catherine confronts Hal's affections and Claire's plans for her life, she struggles to solve the most perplexing problem of all: how much of her father's madness - or genius - will she inherit? Only the secret locked away in her father's desk drawer holds the answer.
