Currently doing this show and got to speak with the playwright on the first day of rehearsal. It was one of her first works to really put her name into the theater world. She had tons of fun writing it and you can absolutely tell.

Great, strong female lead with some powerful scenes throughout, yet still has a strong sense of ensemble at it's heart.

Great Lady protagonist. Fun historical setting and science themes. Also some interesting new theatrical devices (linking breath with lighting cues) that enhance the emotional life of Emilie. One of the best plays I've read this year.
