  Emilie: La Marquise du Chatelet Defends Her Life Tonight at The Greenhouse Theater Center

Emilie: La Marquise du Chatelet Defends Her Life Tonight

The Greenhouse Theater Center
2257 N Lincoln Avenue Chicago

La Marquise du Châtelet was a woman born in the wrong era. A brilliant mathematician and physicist, she was the toast of the Enlightenment. Nevertheless, she's not a very well known historical figure. Voltaire got it right when he said du Châtelet was "a great man whose only fault was being a woman." Now Lauren Gunderson's play Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight resurrects this fascinating personality. Emilie finds herself back in the world of the living, patting her body in surprise and wondering at the reason for her return. She soon becomes desperate to find out whether her challenge to one of Isaac Newton's equations was correct. "I died thinking: Was I right?" she explains. "Shortly followed by: Was I loved? Shortly followed by: Does either one really matter in the end?" This smart, surprising and sexy portrait of a true genius is onstage at the Greenhouse Theater Center in Chicago.
