Georgia Southern Theatre brings “Émilie: The Marquise Du Chatelet Defends Her Life Tonight“ by Lauren Gunderson as the fall season opener.
The 18th century scientific genius Émilie du Châtelet is back and determined to answer the question she
died with: love or philosophy, head or heart? In this highly theatrical rediscovery of one of history’s most intriguing women, Émilie defends her life and loves and ends up with both a formula and a legacy that permeates history.
Directed by Lisa L. Abbott, Émilie is the story of a mathematical genius, the first woman published by the French Academy of Science, a member of the royalty and a lover of Voltaire. The Marquise overcomes the challenges faced by women of her time by living her life on her own terms. She fought for her own education, carried out experiments in physics and completed a translation and commentary of Isaac Newton’s Principia Mathematica that is still in use to date.
Lauren Gunderson is an American playwright who is best known for her plays about women in science and history and comedies based on Shakespeare. She is currently one of America’s top 20 most produced playwrights.
Georgia Southern Theatre brings Émilie Du Châtelet to life on Wednesday, September 26 and runs
through Wednesday, 0ctober 3. Curtain for all performances is at 7:30pm (The Sunday Matinee is on September 30 at 2pm). We encourage audience members to arrive at least 15 minutes early as all seats are open admission.
