The Catalyst

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.

Casting will be on Tuesday 21st November at 18:30 in the Genopode (UNIL).
