"A play about scientists whose science matters less than their humanity . . . All four [characters]--whether loving, hating, encouraging or impeding one another--are intensely alive, complex, funny, human." --JOHN SIMON, New York on Proof "An exhilarating and assured new play . . . Accessible and compelling as a detective story." --BRUCE WEBER, The New York Times on Proof
