SecondStory Repertory is holding auditions for our May 2018 production of Proof by David Auburn. Directed by Danny Miller.
On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with; her own volatile emotions, the arrival of her estranged sister Claire, and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness, or genius, will she inherit? Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize.

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Roles listed are representative. Exact casting will be determined at callbacks. Roles are for ages 18 and up. All ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
CATHERINE - Intelligent mathematics student who dropped out of college to spend the past few years isolated with her mentally ill father in Chicago. She uses sarcasm and wit to hide her vulnerability and fears that she has inherited her father’s illness as well as his brilliance.
ROBERT - Catherine’s father. Brilliant mathematics professor who left teaching and research due to developing a mental illness. Seen as very in touch with reality but also a man lost in his illness.
CLAIRE - Catherine’s older sister. A sophisticated, educated professional, both decisive and practical, she plans for Catherine to move to New York after assuming that Catherine has inherited her father’s illness. Feels responsible for Catherine and somewhat guilty for leaving her with Robert.
HAL - One of Robert’s students. Highly regards Robert as a teacher and mathematician, even after his illness. Prone to leaping without looking, he is into music and slightly quirky, but fun and good hearted.
