Coming to a Porch Near You: Bilingual "Proof"

Poster for "Proof"

Coming to Puget Sound this summer: a bilingual staging of David Auburn's Pulitzer Prize winning play, Proof, performed on various backyard porches. Admission is free for all.

Este verano en Puget Sound, se presentará la obra ganadora del premio Pulitzer, Proof, escrita por David Auburn, en varios patios residenciales. Entrada libre de costo.

This summer, The Proof Porch Project is bringing a bilingual production of David Auburn’s Proof to low-income neighborhoods in Seattle by staging it on people’s back porches, free of charge to anyone who’d like to attend. They have partnered with community organizations, such as SeaMar and Casa Latina, who will be present at various performance to discuss the impact of mental illness in communities of color and provide resources for people who need it.

Proof is a modern classic of American theatre, and we believe that viewing it through a Latinx lens adds extra layers to the play’s already complex character relationships, which are not only affected by mental illness, but also by language and their ability to identify with their household culture. This is the first time Proof is being stage bilingually with a mostly Latinx cast, uniquely expanding the definitions of American theatre and American stories.

The link to reserve free tickets can be found here. You can find out more about the artists and the project on the Project website.

Performances will be Friday through Sunday at 6:00pm at the following locations on the following dates:

  • Beacon Hill: 3820 13th Ave S, 98108 (August 11-13)
  • North Seattle: 13519 23rd Ave NE, 98125 (August 18-20)
  • Burien: 12827 3rd Ave S, 98168 (August 25-27)

“I want audiences to recognize the importance of seeing Latinx and brown geniuses on stage”
— Sophie Franco, actor for Proof Porch Project
