I need help. I am doing a report on "Proof" by David Auburn and I am not sure about what the theme is, and how the setting, characterization, symbols, or language help to develop the theme. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah, I'm quite of fan of Auburn's Proof. He's an aspiring genius as brilliant as the herione in the play. Considering he won a Pulitzer Prize for his second full length play ever written, I can't help but to praise this man for his gift at writing. The characters are so indebth and complex and real that it's hard not to delve into this piece. Auburn once said he felt a big sense of importance (or some form of this) when he saw actors taking his work very seriously. I think from that experience, he grew as a playwright and really took into account of what he was writing. The plot is so genius. It's a mix of a solid, tangible proof with questioned authorship, and a vague, intangable proof of love and relationships. With it's small cast, it's intimate and complex, and a lovely addition to the diverse and numerous amounts of theatre literature.
