Proof - David Auburn - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the play Proof:

Reconciling grief, love, resentment, trust, and talent.

My favorite David Auburn quote from the book:

"I trusted you. Was I wrong?"

Questions I pondered while reading the book:

Is it possible to spend too much time alone?

Why is independent education so mistrusted?

My review of Proof:

I *really* want to see it live now.

The play has a good flow.

I admire genius.
