Readers’ Theater: Proof

The difficulty of proving a mathematical theorem about prime numbers becomes a metaphor for the uncertainties of love, trust, and personal integrity in this drama which won a 2001 Tony Award, the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for drama, and which was made into a hit movie in 2005. Presented by Whole Art Theatre.
