Audible Inc., the world’s largest seller and producer of downloadable audiobooks and other spoken-word entertainment, is pleased to announce the world premiere of Proof of Love, the new play by Audible-commissioned playwright Chisa Hutchinson (Surely Goodness and Mercy, Somebody’s Daughter), directed by Jade King Carroll (The Gin Game, Hello From the Children of Planet Earth), and starring Brenda Pressley (The Lyons, Almost Home, Seven Guitars) as the next Audible Theater production at the Minetta Lane Theatre. Proof of Love will be produced in association with New York Theatre Workshop.

Proof of Love is the inaugural live production from Audible’s Emerging Playwright program, a dedicated $5M fund that enables the creation of original plays driven by language and voice, keeping with Audible’s core commitment to elevating listening experiences through powerful performances and extraordinary storytelling. Twenty-five commissions have already been announced, with new playwrights identified on an annual basis.

As with previous Audible Theater shows at the Minetta Lane, Audible will also record and release Proof of Love as an audio play, extending its reach to millions of listeners around the world.

Constance thought she had a happy life and a loving husband. Suddenly, a tragic accident splinters her upper-class black family—and forces Constance to face uncomfortable truths about her marriage and herself. Proof of Love is the explosive, funny, and moving new one-woman play by Chisa Hutchinson, member of the first class of talent supported by the Audible Playwrights Fund; Jade King Carroll directs.

The full creative team for Proof of Love will be announced soon.
