On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a young woman who has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert, must deal not only with his death but with the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire, and with the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father’s who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that Robert left behind. As Catherine confronts Hal’s affections and Claire’s plans for her life, she struggles to solve the most perplexing problem of all: How much of her father’s madness – or genius – will she inherit?

“Greg King has a winner in Proof- an excellently directed and performed play by a brilliant playwright.”Caroline Smart, Artsmart
“This detective-like drama draws the audience in, forcing one to make a choice… Olivia Borgen is supurb… Neil Coppen is well cast… and Clare Mortimer is excellent as the over-bearing, control-freak sister.”Kuben Chettyo, The Mercury
“Things theatrical down at the Kwasuka just keep getting better, with King’s production of David Auburn’s Pulitzer Prize winning Proof being a case in point… Played against one of King’s best sets with subtle lighting design by George Holloway, this is a superbly wrought piece, with wonderfully understated performances from the four actors. It’s certainly one of the best dramas I have seen…”Sally Scott, The Daily News
