Beowulf Alley Theatre

Proof by David Auburn Opens This Weekend!

Much More Is Happening Throughout April

(Tucson, AZ – April 9, 2009) Tickets are selling quickly for this weekend's performance of Proof, David Auburn's Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play. Director Sheldon Metz and the very talented cast comprised of Jill Baker, Chris Farishon, Jonathan Northover and Roberto Guajardo are ready to offer you an evening or Sunday afternoon of entertainment for the next three weekends. Preview tickets are $10, this Friday night only. General admission tickets are $20. There is a general admission online discount. Opening night's performance will be followed by a reception and this Sunday's performance will be followed with Dialogues with..., a discussion session with the actors, director and production team. On April 23, there is a special benefit performance and post-performance reception hosted by The Cup Cafe for the U of A Math Department's Center for the Recruitment and Retention of Math Teachers. Tickets for this performance are $30 with $10 of each ticket contributed to CRR. Just click here for all tickets or call (520) 882-0555 between the hours of noon and 4. If our phone lines are busy, just leave your name and number and we'll call you back.

Performances are on Thursdays, Friday and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 1:30 p.m. (The Sundays were not listed on the postcard. We're human and do occasionally make mistakes. Tell all of your friends.) There are three weekends of performances with a closing date of April 26.

Director Metz says, "Proof superficially explores topics of mental stability and genius. More significantly, it's a play about character, about finding solutions to life's problems, the trust we place in these solutions, in ourselves, and in each other. The proof in Auburn's play is less about mathematics than it is about putting trust to the test. Elegant in its structural simplicity, Proof is an emotionally complex play rich with the motivational calculus of father/daughter, sister/sister, student/teacher and romantic relationships. But it’s the wonderful characters and relationships, that first drew me to it."

We'll see you soon… but wait! There’s more! Read on
