Matthew Marsh and Mariah Gale in Proof

Proof, Menier Chocolate Factory, London

Proof tells the story of Robert (Matthew Marsh), a one-time maths genius who, now middle-aged, suffers from an unspecified, sporadic madness and general mental decline, after his skills peaked at the age of 25. It focuses on his daughter, Catherine, played by Mariah Gale, who is also very gifted at maths, but gave up a place at college to care for him full-time. The set is the back garden of their dilapidated home in Chicago, all crumbling wood and decaying plants.

Lianne La Havas performs live at the Shepherds Bush Empire last night

Lianne La Havas, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London

Then, she seemed flattered by the tiny crowd that had come to hear her play for an hour. That was before last year’s Mercury prize nomination and before her first album, Is Your Love Big Enough? was named iTunes Album of the Year. Has fame changed her?
