By David Auburn. Ensemble Theatre (NSW). Director: Sandra Bates. February 5 – March 8, 2014
PROOF plays with the fascinating paradox that while mathematics is a perfect science where one plus one always equals two, in life, problems cannot be resolved as easily as square roots or algebra. Life is messy and doesn’t follow reliable algorithms.
Ensemble Theatre, under the direction of Sandra Bates, earnestly brings David Auburn’s Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning play to life to explore this paradox. Aided in no small part by Matilda Ridgway as Catherine, who is thrilling and delightfully messy for all the right reasons.
