How much of our parents we want to inherit, and how much we prefer not to become like them? Proof is the winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and is a work that explores the tricky development of personal identity and the unknowability of love as much as it does the mysteries of the world of math. Proof focuses on Catherine, a young woman who has spent years caring for her father, Robert, (a brilliant mathematician as a young man, who was later unable to function without her help.)
