Missouri State University Theatre and Dance presents David Auburn's award-winning drama "Proof" in the Craig Hall Balcony Theatre Feb.13-26.  Catherine is a dutiful daughter has put her life on hold to care for her father, a brilliant mathematician suffering from mental illness.  Catherine shares her father's passion for theoretical math but fears she may also share his mental instability.  Following her father's death, one of his former grad students finds a revolutionary, paradigm-shifting mathematical proof in the mathematician's desk.  No one believes the work could be Catherine's, and she now has to struggle to prove the authenticity and authorship of the proof--as well as her own sanity.  Carol Maples directs this production in the Craig Hall Balcony Theatre.  Performances are Thursday and Friday Feb.13 & 14 and Monday through Wednesday the 24th through the 26th all at 7:30pm, and Sunday the 16th at 2:30pm.
