Synopsis

The play concerns Catherine and her struggle with mathematical genius and mental illness of her father Robert. Catherine’s life has been placed on hold as she cares for her father. An ex-graduate student Hal discovers a paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers in Robert’s office. The title refers both to that proof and to the play’s central question: Can Catherine prove the proof’s authorship? Along with demonstrating the proof’s authenticity. Throughout, the play explores Catherine’s fear of following in her father’s footsteps, both mathematically and mentally and her desperate attempts to stay in control of what to do next as her sister Claire has separate plans.
