The 66th Newry Drama Festival takes place between 16 - 24 March 2018 with seven nights of the best of Irish Drama. 

Tonight it's Proof by David Auburn. Wexford Drama Group

Wexford Drama Group present the award winning and very beautiful American play “Proof” by David Auburn
"Proof" by David Auburn premiered on Broadway in October 2000. It received national attention, earning the Drama Desk Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and the Tony Award for Best Play.
The play concerns Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius in his fifties and professor at the University of Chicago, and her struggle with mathematical genius and mental illness. Catherine had cared for her father through a lengthy mental illness.

Upon Robert's death, his ex-graduate student Hal discovers a paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers in Robert's office. The title refers both to that proof and to the play's central question: Can Catherine prove the proof's authorship? Along with demonstrating the proof's authenticity, the daughter also finds herself in a relationship with 28-year-old Hal. Throughout, the play explores Catherine's fear of following in her father's footsteps, both mathematically and mentally and her desperate attempts to stay in control.


Directed by Paul Walsh and featuring Phil Lyons, Danielle Reck, Stephen Byrne and Patrice Mcgillycuddy.
