In David Auburns Pulitzer Prize winner Proof, directed by Nicholas Stamiris-Haze, Catherine mourns her father, Robert, a brilliant mathematician whose struggle with mental illness made him entirely dependent on her in the final years of his life. His recent death has brought into her midst both her sister, Claire, who wants to take Catherine back to New York with her, and Hal, a former student of Catherines father, who hopes to find some hint of Roberts genius among his incoherent scribbling.|
Theatre has the power to go beyond entertainment - it reflects life, and showcases the uniqueness of our triumphs and pitfalls. Proof exposes the reality of those living with mental illness and the impact of their situation on their caregivers and loved ones.
With this partnership, Snowglobe and L'Abri en Ville aim to raise awareness around mental illness and fundraise for the cause. This gala performance will include a pre-show talk by one of the beneficiaries of LAbri en Villes activities, accompanied by refreshments and a silent auction.
