Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Tony Award for Best Play and Drama Desk for Best Play. David Auburn’s first play is a play about family, mental health and math.

With the proof as a fulcrum, Catherine must come to terms with her discovery and her father’s legacy. This show contains foul language.

Notably: It was on this day in 1970 that Nixon ordered the secret and illegal invasion of Cambodia, triggering that country’s descent into chaos and, between 1975 and 1978, Pol Pot’s genocide of one third his own people, until it was stopped–ironically–by a Vietnamese invasion. Nixon and Kissinger’s actions led to war crimes, directly and indirectly, as William Schawcross reported in Sideshow: Kissinger, Nixon, and the Destruction of Cambodia. Five years later on this same day, in 1975, South Vietnam fell to the Vietcong, ending America’s war there. Also, Charlie Parker made his first recording on this day in 1941 (“hootie Blues”)–it is also International Jazz Day–and Warner Bros.’ Bugs Bunny made his debut on this date in 1938.
