The Aug. 9 performance will have a talkback with Joseph A. Vandehey, a postdoctoral reserach associate and part-time instructor in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences’ math department.

Proof centers on Catherine, the daughter of a recently deceased mathematician, as she tries to come to grips with her possible “inheritance”—her father’s insanity.

The performance is directed by Beth Kozinsky, a former faculty member for the English department. Assistant director Emily Meyers is an administrative associate II for the Honors Program.
