Proof of Love, the world-premiere play by Audible-commissioned playwright Chisa Hutchinson (Surely Goodness and Mercy), directed by Jade King Carroll (The Gin Game), and starring Brenda Pressley (The Lyons), has announced its rush policy. Performances begin May 7 ahead of a May 14 opening night at the Minetta Lane Theatre, Audible's creative home for live performances in New York.

Each day beginning at 10am, a limited amount of rush tickets for Proof of Love will be available on a first-come, first-served basis through TodayTix for $25. To gain access to rush tickets, ticket buyers must download the TodayTix app and unlock the functionality by sharing on their Facebook or Twitter pages. Tickets will be available for pick up at the Minetta Lane Theatre box office. Mobile rush concludes when inventory has sold out or two hours before the performance.

Additionally, $25 rush tickets will be available in-person at the box office for young people (ages 25 and under), seniors (ages 65+), artists, and East Village and Lower East Side residents. Rush tickets are subject to availability and are sold cash only, limit two per person. Proper identification is required for all rush tickets.

The story is described as follows: "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 inaugural live production from Audible's Emerging Playwright program, a dedicated $5 million 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.
