Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight
Lauren Gunderson's reality-bending play explores the life and loves of Emilie du Châtelet, a scientific genius of 18th century France. Women of her era were considered too simple-minded to understand mathematics or physics, but Emilie produced work ranging from a groundbreaking paper on the nature of fire (the first by a woman ever published by the Paris Academy) to essays on Liebniz and Locke, to a celebrated and still-used translation and commentary on Isaac Newton's Principia Mathematica. She was married to a nobleman of the court of Louis XV, and took a series of lovers, including the writer and philosopher Voltaire.
In the play, Emilie is returned from the afterlife to recount and defend her life. Assisted by an ensemble of four, she replays her relationships with family, colleagues and lovers, and examines her unanswered questions about life and love, science and philosophy.
