Tonight I saw a local college's production of the play Proof by David Auburn. Having been transitioning between hemispheres around the time the movie version with Gwyneth Paltrow came out, I was unaware of the existence of this play/movie. I enjoyed the math jokes, felt for the main character's struggles, and appreciated the discussion of mathematicians' drive to achieve and worries about being unable to do so. I was also impressed by how well the college students put on this play, especially in light of the fact that they just started their academic year three weeks ago!

I look forward to seeing the movie version now--Anthony Hopkins, Gwyneth Paltrow, and less swearing!
