20 - 28 March 2020
Bridge Street Theatre Coniston

We are pleased to announce Black Box’s next full-length production as part of its 2020 season as well as its new 2019-2020 artistic residency – the first to be offered with the Bridge Street Theatre, Coniston. This agreement will see our full-length, 24 Hour Theatre and Short+Sweet Illawarra at Coniston next year.

Kicking off our 2020 season at Bridge Street will be Pulitzer Prize-winning drama ‘Proof’ by David Auburn, directed by Luke Berman from the 20th to the 28th March.

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 brilliance as well as the doubt of her sanity.

“A touching study in filial devotion, as brilliant people struggle against their fears of madness.” Michael Sommers, New York Times.
