Brad Stephens has accepted an offer to play the role of “Hal” in the upcoming production of Proof at Mesquite Community Theatre.
Written by David Auburn and directed by Doug Luke, the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play runs June 10–25, 2011 at the Mesquite Arts Center. This will be the third production Brad has mounted at MCT, previously performing as Chris Keller in All My Sons (2008) and directing To Gillian On Her 37th Birthday (2009).
On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, 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 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father’s madness – or genius – will she inherit?
