Fly-By-Night Productions Opens Their 40th Anniversary

Season with David Auburn’s {PROOF}

August 15, 2022 (DUBUQUE, IA) Fly-By-Night Productions (FBNP) opens their 2022-2023 season with a production of Proof by David Auburn and directed by Logan Eigenberger September 16, 17, & 23, 24, 2022 at 7:30 pm; September 18, 2022, at 2:00pm at The Bijou Room, Five Flags Center, Dubuque, Iowa.

Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her father Robert, a genius and famous mathematician until he succumbed to mental illness. Catherine has inherited some of

that mathematical genius. A notebook of Robert’s is discovered, in which is proved a theorem mathematicians thought impossible. But, who really wrote it? Thus, Catherine is drawn into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father’s madness- or genius- will she inherit?


Proof is also a story about human relationships, family dynamics, suggesting that developing trust and love can be as difficult, and just as uncertain, as establishing the truth of a mathematical proof.
