Summary

Proof is an intimate “fly on the wall” look at a brilliant mathematician, his protege, and his daughter, all committed and passionate about their pursuit to understand the world through a mathematical lens. A beautifully crafted drama that allows room for humor and for hope in lives that must sacrifice individual ambition for family, Proof swept all the awards in 2001, including the Tony and Pulitzer for Best Play.
