Mark your calendars! Sunday evening, February 25, at the BIG ARTS Strauss Theater on Periwinkle Way, the Sanibel Community Players will present a staged reading of the award-winning play PROOF by David Auburn. The reading, directed by Robert Runck, features Dorothy Donaldson, Molly Downing and Judy Koloski.

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 Hallie, 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, the discovery of a mysterious notebook draws Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father’s madness—or genius—has she inherited?
