Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight, a play by Lauren Gunderson:  She was a physicist, mathematician, and aristocrat. She was a card shark, rebel, and genius. She was the outspoken, revolutionary, and brilliantly sexy Marquise who revised Newton, corrected Voltaire, and scandalized France. Émilie du Châtelet has returned to defend her life, loves, and legacy. To do that, she must learn the fundamental laws of the universe – and of the human soul. Directed by Sue Scarborough.
