The plot as described in http://plays.about.com/od/plays/fr/proof.htm "Catherine, the twenty-something daughter of an esteemed mathematician, has just laid her father to rest. He died after suffering through a prolonged mental illness. Robert, her father, had once been a gifted, ground-breaking professor. But as he lost his sanity, he lost his ability to coherently work with numbers.

The audience quickly learns that Catherine is brilliant in her own right, but she fears that she might possess the same mental illness which ultimately incapacitated her father. To make matters worse, her older sister wants to take her to New York, where she can be cared for - in an institution if need be. On top of everything else, Hal (a devoted student of Robert's) searches through the professor's files hoping to discover something useable so that his mentor's final years weren't a complete waste.

That's when Hal discovers a pad of paper filled with profound, cutting-edge calculations. He incorrectly assumes the work is a product of Robert. In truth, Catherine wrote the mathematic proof. No one believes her. So now she must provide proof that the proof belongs to her. (Note the double-entendre of the title.)"

    Hi guys

    It came to my attention that the online site for selling tickets is down. The theater agreed to reserve 7 tickets on my name. If you already have a ticket or if you are not coming please let me know by 3 pm the latest. My email is [masked]

    Thank you

    Athena, I did not get a ticket on line. Can I still buy it at the door?

    Okay then guys, some of us or all of us will meet between 6 and 6:15 at the Bilmar station 8501 W Hillsborough Ave, for a drink or something to eat.

    I checked for bars but to go before, not after. If you guys want to go after, no problem. I found the Bilmar station. It appears quite simple, but with loud music. I just talked to them and they said they will keep the music down for us. 8501 W Hillsborough Ave

    Also pretty close there is a Chili's that also has a bar.8510 W Hillsborough Ave.

    I have been to neither one myself.

      Either would work I am sure

      By looking at photos, the Bilmar Station has tables. Chili's has a very long bar, so face to face interaction is limited only to the person next to you.. I would say the Bilmar station for that reason. According to Mapquest it is .72 miles away from the theater. I will email the attendees and if we get a crowd I will call to reserve a table. If it is a few of us, I don't think there is need for a reservation. Is 6-6:15 okay? We should leave the bar by 7:30.

    Looked a bit for restaurants or for drinks afterwards, but so far nothing jumped out. This one has a nice bar but it's on Dale Mabry - https://grilleonesixteen.com/new/

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
