La Marquise du Châtelet was a mathematician, a physicist and the toast of the Enlightenment. So why then is the Marquise not better known? Perhaps Voltaire put it best when he said du Châtelet was "a great man whose only fault was being a woman." Now, Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight, the brilliant play from Lauren Gunderson (Leap), resurrects this fascinating personality.
