David Auburn’s Proof opened April 12 at the Wimberley Playhouse. With the show closing on May 5, the performances are numbered; don’t miss your chance to see two current Bobcats on stage.

Under the direction of Aaron Johnson, the Wimberley Players put on Proof, a riveting drama that centers around a mathematician’s daughter who is struggling to pick up the pieces after losing her father.

As a genius mathematician, Robert, played by David Giminiani, was known for solving complicated proofs, but declined rapidly due to his dementia. Texas State student Abigail Remaley plays Catherine, who acted as her father’s caregiver through his struggle with his illness. Just as brilliant as her father, Catherine fears that she will take after her father both mentally and mathematically.

Catherine’s older sister, Claire, played by Texas State student Kathleen Henderson, returns home to help Catherine settle their father’s affairs. Catherine’s paranoia only strains the sisters’ kinship.

More stress is added when Hal, played by James Lidsley, a former graduate student, finds a groundbreaking paradigm shifting proof about prime numbers among Robert’s work. With it, he also discovers the family’s buried secret. Catherine is then grappled with authorship, relationships and picking up the pieces.

Proof delivers a story about fathers and daughters and explores the eternal love of a family.

The show opened on April 12, but does not close until May 5. The Wimberley Playhouse offers shows on Fridays and Saturdays, as well as a matinee on Sundays.

Tickets are $22 with discounted prices for students at $18. Tickets are available via phone at 512.847.0575 or online. Tickets may also be bought at the door 30 minutes before curtain.
