The story of a young woman named Catherine
PROOF is the story of a young woman named Catherine.
She is the daughter of Robert, a brilliant mathematician, who misplaces both his brilliance and his sanity in his later years.
Catherine, a budding mathematician herself, must give up her schooling and her most creatively productive years in order to take care of her father.
When Hal, a former student of her father's comes to examine his papers hoping to find valuable material in his notebooks, a romance with Catherine blossoms.
Hal also finds a notebook that contains a very important mathematical discovery and the question of whose work is in the notebook is raised.
The New York Times describes David Auburn's Proof as "an exhilarating and assured new play... accessible and compelling as a detective story".
Director Tracie Faithfull is seeking two females and one male in their mid to late 20s and one male in his 50s for the four wonderful roles on offer.
An information night will be held on Tuesday, April 1 at the Playhouse Theatre Steffensen St with the audition to follow on Tuesday, April 22.
The performances will be held on June 13, 14, 20, 21 at 7.30pm and Sunday, June 15 at 3pm.
Tickets selling fast for comedy
Bundaberg loves a good comedy and tickets for the hysterical bedroom farce Move Over Mrs Markham which opens its five-performance season on March 21 have been selling like hot cakes.
Playwrights Ray Cooney and John Chapman have created a work which relies on fast-paced action and clever dialogue and a good night out at the theatre is guaranteed.
With a premise of clandestine affairs and secret liaisons, Move Over Mrs Markham has moments of sheer madness with mistaken identities and double entendres galore.
