The cast of “Proof.”

Special to Iredell Free News

Every person sitting in the audience will be able to relate to a character in the Theatre Statesville production of “Proof.”

The cast will take you on a powerful journey to the family’s back porch where you will experience a passionate, intelligent story about fathers and daughters, the nature of genius, and the power of love.

The production, which opened Thursday night and runs through March 1. David Auburn’s play is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

The drama tells the story of Catherine, who has inherited her father’s mathematical brilliance but is haunted by the fear that she might also share his debilitating mental illness. Caught between a newfound connection with one of her father’s former students and the reappearance of her sister Claire, Catherine finds both her world and her mind growing increasingly unstable. 

The show will take place at The Rotary Auditorium at Mitchell Community College, 500 W. Broad Street, Statesville. The entrance to the auditorium faces North Mulberry Street, under the MCC Huskins Library.
