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. Brought back from the dead, Emilie is determined to answer the questions that haunted her dying moments on Earth: "Was I right?" and "Was I loved?" As she travels back in time to revisit key moments in her scientific and emotional journeys, the full extent of her remarkably prescient legacy is revealed in this smart, surprising and sexy portrait of a true genius.

This was an appealing play for parents and children - about the mischievous, mythic Tokaloloshe. Both children and parents were delighted and charmed by the various antics enacted by a cast of young actors, several of whom displayed remarkable aplomb and created characters of great individuality.

Fun AND instructional is surely a winning combo.
