Glenamaddy Players to stage ‘Proof’

Glenamaddy Players, who are taking part in the All Ireland Confined Drama Finals in Glenamaddy this month, will stage David Auburn’s award-winning play ‘Proof’.

Their involvement in the finals is a notable achievement for the local group and comes hot on the heels of Glenamaddy Players celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2022.

With a team of talented actors and a skilled and dedicated crew, the group has had huge success over the years. They have qualified for the All Ireland Three-Act Confined finals on several occasions, most recently in 2022 with ‘The Cripple of Inishmaan’, by Martin McDonagh, which finished in second place at the finals in Ballyshannon.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award, David Auburn’s play ‘Proof’ is a moving exploration of the nature of genius, women in mathematics, and father-daughter relationships.
The story centres on an enigmatic woman (Anna Flaherty), her brilliant father (John Donlon), an unanticipated suitor (Cian Boyle) and Catherine’s strong-willed sister Claire (Niamh O’Flanagan). After the discovery of a groundbreaking proof, Catherine is confronted with the question of how much of her mathematician father’s brilliance did she inherit – and is that the only thing he passed on to her?

The great cast are served by a very committed crew who are once again determined to present the standard of professionalism the audience has come to expect over many years of drama tradition in Glenamaddy. The Glenamaddy Players’ production is directed by Coman Keaveny.
