full-length play Skyscraper in 1997 and his first short playWhat Do You Believe About the Future?,which has since been adapted
into a film, shortly thereafter. He is most notorious for Proof, which garnered a 2001 Tony Award for Best Play and a 2001
Pulitzer Prize for Drama. He continues his success with his play The Columnist, which starred John Lithgow and ran on Broadway
in 2012, and his work in the film industry as a screenwriter and director forThe Lake House, the film adaptation of Proof,
and The Girl in the Park.
