For season 2017-2018, the Catalyst is putting on Proof by David Auburn.
Catherine has spent years caring for her father, Robert, a brilliant mathematician whose genius was crippled by mental insanity. When he dies, his former student Hal insists on going through his 103 notebooks, hoping to find hints of Robert’s genius. Her sister Claire comes back from New York, worried that Catherine should stay alone in their father’s house. She raises a question which has been haunting Catherine for a while: how much of her father's madness or genius has she inherited? This Pultizer Prize-winning fine and tender play opened at the Donmar Warehouse in 2001.
The play will be on stage in April 2018!
This amateur production of Proof is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

Exposure Science Film Hackathon will take place form the 1st to the 3rd of December 2017. Applications are now open!
Science can appear inaccessible and complex to non-scientists and art can seem unachievable and daunting to scientists. This 3 day course aims to bring together scientists and artists to create films that communicate complex concepts in science. In groups of 4, participants will find a scientific concept, decide how they want to communicate this concept, and produce a short film aimed at a non-scientist audience.
The short films are created with the aim of communicating fascinating scientific concepts and engaging members of the public with science. On the last evening of the event the films will be presented to a panel of judges who will award a prize to the film that best fulfills the aims of the hackathon. There will also be a free public showing of the films. Check out the Exposure Hackaton website.
