Émilie: The Marquise Du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight.  by Lauren Gunderson
Produced by Georgia Southern University

House opens at 8:00, curtain at 8:30
Written by Georgia playwright Lauren Gunderson, 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.
