Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight
This 18th century intellectual powerhouse, noblewoman, wife, mother, and lover played by her own rules. As a child, her father said, My child flaunts her mind and frightens away her suitors. Upon her death, Voltaire wrote, she had a soul for which mine was made. Love or philosophy? How does Emilie sum up life?
Lauren Gunderson, a playwright in residence at Marin Theatre Company, brings to light this passionate, sexy, and ferociously smart woman in a night of theater you wont soon forget. Strong language, mild adult themes.
"Gunderson possesses an antic imagination that seeks to invent its own rules. As soon as were drawn in, she shakes us and whisks us ten or fifteen paces ahead." - Los Angeles Times
