Drama Club Presents Award-Winning Play Proof

April 10, 2014

Lasell's Drama Club presents its Spring production, Proof by David Auburn, this weekend beginning with a performance Thursday, April 10.

Performances are scheduled for Thursday, April 10 and Friday April 11 at 7 pm and Saturday April 12 at 2 and 7 pm at Yamawaki Auditorium. The performances are free and open to the public.

Proof, winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, tells the story of Catherine, a troubled young woman, who has spent years caring for her brilliant, but unstable father. Following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions, the arrival of her estranged sister and the affections of her father's former student. A question she must face is: How much of her father's genius - or madness - did she inherit?

The production, directed by Professor Hortense Gerardo, features performances by Tim Doucette, Dan Fox, Micaela Haggerty, and Jamie Trevino.

Head Stage Manager is Meaghan Spillane; Sound and Video Production, Ashanah Tripp, Light Design by Sebastian Carolle, Technical Consultants, Jonah Goska, Tim Holmes, Tania Lee, Julie Kjeer, Graphic Design by Stephen Fischer.

A special art installation by Gerardo will precede Friday's and Saturday's evening performance from 6-7 pm. The Installation, called SHADOW/PROOF HOUSE, features augmented reality, movement and an audience-interactive app that manipulates the soundscape within the installation.

The installation was supported by Tania Lee - Media and Technical Production, Jonah Goska - Technical Assistance, Jon Wade - Set Production and Professor Vladimir Zimakov - Curation.
