not talked for two weeks, a young married couple decides to meet in
Central Park at midnight in an attempt to fix their marriage. Suddenly
fate takes an unexpected turn leaving the man trapped on the subway
with an intriguing new stranger, and the woman on a park bench in the
company of a clumsy, yet charming man. As the midnight deadline fast
approaches, they find themselves in the midst of a vital decision: Do
they continue to wait for each other, in hopes of proving that their
marriage is “meant to be?” Or do they let their odd attraction
for their newfound acquaintances disprove the idea of their marriage
all together? A shocking finale forces audiences to reconsider their
conceptions of love.
Written by NYU Drama student and emerging playwright Christopher C.
Beier, Proof by Disproof confronts and challenges conceptions about
destiny, love, and the ideal notion of “meant to be.” Dealing
with issues of marriage and divorce, the story fits well into our current
society, where 50% of marriages seem to end in shambles. This is a delightful,
heart wrenching, and fresh new play that we at Small Pond are honored
and excited to be a part of.
