Pulitzer Prize Play "Proof" to be Performed at Serendipity Playhouse

Vancouver, WA Serendipity Players is proud to present the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play, “Proof,” by David Auburn.

A family drama about the nature of genius, questions of legacy, and the willingness to trust. Catherine’s father was a mathematical genius who revolutionized the field. He also suffered from mental illness. Catherine may have inherited her father’s genius, but did she also inherit his burdens?

“This is one of the best scripts I’ve ever read,” Tony Broom, artistic director, said. “I knew before I was done reading it that we had to do it. Our director, Alicia Marie Turvin and I fought a little over who was going to get to direct it.”
