Moonstone Theater Company presents PROOF by David Auburn

Moonstone Theater Company kicks off its inaugural season with the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Proof by David Auburn.

“In continuing to focus on mental health and family for the inaugural season of Moonstone, I was moved and inspired to produce Proof because it deals with these family dynamics with such sensitivity. It focuses on the microcosm of a family in crisis and in particular about the critical relationship between a father and a daughter David Auburn’s Proof won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play It is a clever and compassionate play of ideas and of pathos. I’m so proud to bring this show to St. Louis audiences this season,” Hunter said.

With the play on the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, after her death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of his estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of his father who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks his father left behind. Over the ensuing long weekend, a budding romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook lead Catherine to the most difficult problem of all: how much of her father’s madness or genius will she inherit?

The show features a talented cast of four, including Michael James Reed as Robert, Summer Baer as Catherine, Julie Amuedo as Claire, and Spencer Sickmann as Hal. Production is led by Artistic Director Sharon Hunter. The creative team is made up of Dunsi Dai (Scenery), Michael Sullivan (Lighting), Amanda Werre (Sound) and Michele Siler (Costumes).

Proof runs from March 24 through April 10 at the Studio Theater at the Kirkwood Performing Arts Center (210 E Monroe Ave, Kirkwood, MO 63122). Individual tickets are $50 for general admission, $30 for senior tickets, and $15 for student tickets. Tickets are available for purchase by visiting www.moonstonetheatrecompany.com/tickets.
