Legacy of Light

Legacy of Light

A Comedy/Drama
By Karen Zacarias
Directed by Shelly Gaza
Norton Theatre
 
Written by award-winning playwright Karen Zacharias, Legacy of Light follows the lives of two women scientists, living hundreds of years apart, as they explore the meaning of love, motherhood, family, art and science in this contemporary comedy. Legacy of Light juxtaposes the story of Émilie du Châtelet, a mathematician, scientist, and lover of the great 18th-century philosopher Voltaire, who became unexpectedly pregnant at 42, and that of a 21st-century American physicist desperately trying to conceive a child. Zacharias is one the country’s preeminent playwrights and leading Latina voices in American Theatre, having won numerous awards including the National Latino Play Award, New Voices Award, and the Steinberg Citation for Best New Play for Legacy of Light.    
 
Rated: PG 13
