Hope Mill Theatre announces casting for first in-house play, ‘Proof’

Hope Mill Theatre has announced casting for its first self-produced, in-house play, David Auburn‘s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, Proof, which will run at the Manchester venue from 27 November to 2 December 2018.

Marking the directorial debut of Hope Mill Theatre’s co-Artistic Director, Joseph Houston, the cast will include Angela Costello, Lucy Jane Dixon, Sam Holland and David Keller.

Catherine (Dixon) has inherited her late father’s mathematical brilliance, but she is haunted by the fear that she might also share his debilitating mental illness. She has spent years caring for her now-deceased father and, upon his death, she feels left alone to pick up the pieces of her life without him.

Caught between a new-found connection with Hal (Holland) – one of her father’s former students – and the reappearance of her sister Claire (Costello), Catherine finds both her world and her mind growing increasingly unstable. Hal then discovers a ground-breaking mathematical proof among the 103 notebooks Catherine’s father left behind, and Catherine is forced to question whether she will inherit her father’s genius or madness.
