David Auburn’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play Proof comes to the Menier Chocolate Factory directed by Polly Findlay (Antigone, A Taste Of Honey), and starring Emma Cunniffe, Mariah Gale, Matthew Marsh and Jamie Parker.

Catherine has cared for her father Robert, a renowned mathematician, through his mental illness for the past five years. His ex-student, Hal, discovers a ground-breaking proof in Robert’s office but the question is posed: who is the real author of this brilliant work?
