SPRINGFIELD - The play "Proof", by David Auburn, will be presented by SHS students on Friday, June 11, and Saturday, June 12, at 7 p.m. Admission is donation only, with a suggested donation of about $5.
Proof tells the story of Catherine, a slightly sarcastic and dour 20-something. Upon the death of Catherine's father, Robert, a famous but mentally ill mathematician, Catherine claims to have written a revolutionary proof. Claire, Catherine's perkier sister, along with Hal, one of Robert's proteges, question the authorship of the proof as they try to decide whether Catherine has inherited her father's mathematic abilities, his insanity, or both.
This show has been completely directed by SHS students, with production support from adult supervisor, Rebecca Skrypeck. Directed by Kelsey Christensen, Catherine: Eliza Pennell, Robert: Ryan Gottschalk, Hal: Jon Esden and Claire: Jess Watkins.
