Winter Play: PROOF

Leave a comment

Algonquin presents, Proof by David Auburn. Proof tells the story of a young woman dealing with the loss of her father, a brilliant mathematician, who suffered from schizophrenia and her experiences dealing with her own brilliant mind and the frightening possibility of following too closely in her father’s footsteps. The story is a great combination of humor and sincerity that highlights real life issues including relationships and coping with loss and uncertainty. The cast has been working very hard to meet the challenge. There are some mature moments including language use and drinking, which may not be suitable for younger audiences.
Additionally, we will be having talk-backs with the cast after each school performance so that audience members can hear about the cast’s experience working on the show. This has been a very entertaining and educational experience for all involved and we hope to see you there!
Additionally, Algonquin is hosting two other schools for the Drama Festival on Friday afternoon and evening. During the afternoon, our students will have the chance to meet other students from Dennis-Yarmouth and Ayer-Shirley High Schools and showcase their work for each other!
