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.

Playwright Chisa Hutchinson was awarded a commission through the Audible Emerging Playwrights Fund, an initiative dedicated to developing innovative original plays driven by language and voice. As an Audible commissioned playwright, she received funding and creative support to develop Proof of Love.

About the Creator

Chisa is an acclaimed early-career playwright raised and currently residing in Newark, New Jersey. She holds a B.A. in Dramatic Arts from Vassar College and an M.F.A. in Playwriting from NYU. Chisa has built pieces with New York’s NeoFuturists, and has been a Staff Writer for the Blue Man Group. Presently, Chisa teaches creative writing at the University of Delaware, and is a proud fourth-year member of New Dramatists. As she tends to write plays about underrepresented folks that require a minimum of five actors, she doubts very much that you'll see any of her plays on Broadway any time soon, but encourages you to support the intrepid companies that have presented her work, which include: Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey; The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC); The National Black Theatre.
