Director Torie Wiggins deftly leads her small but strong cast through this enjoyable production. The relationships between the four characters are honest and well-defined. The cast: Katie Mitchell as Catherine, Kate Mock Elliott as Catherine’s older sister Clair, Allen R. Middleton as their father Robert and Jared Earland as Robert’s former student Hal are definitely up to the demands of David Auburn’s engaging script.

Designer Doug Stock’s set depicting the rear of the family home is visually impressive and completely believable from the audience. I did feel that an additional element to sit on or lean against could have given the director more options in the blocking. The solid, supporting work of the production team creates a near-perfect environment for this story to be told.

Playing Weekends November 2 – 17, 2019

(COVINGTON, KY) – On Saturday, November 2, The Carnegie will open PROOF, the second show in its 2019-20 season. The poignant play explores one of the most dominant topics in today’s society – mental health.

Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play PROOF follows Catherine, a troubled young woman who has spent years caring for her brilliant, but unstable, father, a math professor at The University of Chicago. Following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father’s, who hopes to find valuable work in the notebooks he left behind. Catherine is left to grapple with the fact that she may have inherited her father’s tendency toward mental illness as well as his genius.

“The best art reflects reality and starts conversations, and that’s what we want to do with PROOF,” said Maggie Perrino, Theatre Director at The Carnegie. “Mental health is an important topic that is on the minds of many in Northern Kentucky. We want audiences to come and enjoy a thoughtful, award-winning show, and then talk about it with their friends and family.”

Performances of PROOF run weekends November 2 – 19, Fridays and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $28, $25 for Carnegie Members and ArtsPass Members, $21 for students. Tickets can be purchased through The Carnegie Box Office, open Tuesday-Friday 12 p.m. – 5 p.m., in person or by phone at (859) 957-1940, or online at www.thecarnegie.com.
