Hortenese Directs Proof

April 7th, 2014 by

Greetings, Fellow Survivors of Winter 2014,

I trust this finds you well and looking forward to warmer days, as surely am I.
I’ve been working with four talented student actors in a production of PROOF by David Auburn.
Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play
Here’s a description of the play in case you’re not familiar with it:
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.  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.  The discovery of a mysterious notebook raises the question:  how much of her father’s genius – or madness – did she inherit?
WHERE: Yamawaki Auditorium
Thursday April 10 and Friday April 11 at 7 PM
Sat April 12 at 2 PM and 7 PM
Tim Doucette, Dan Fox, Micaela Haggerty, and Jamie Trevino
Directed by yours truly.
Free and open to the public.
On Friday night, there will be a reception at 6 PM with wine and snackage to view the set/art installation.
On Thursday and Saturday nights of the run at 6:30 PM, the doors will be open to the public to view the installation work, and to play with the cool augmented reality effects that are part of the project.
Hope you can make it!
In any event, do let me know how you’re doing.
Love to catch up with you soon.
Warm regards,
George Smart
