Legacy of Light – February/March 2011

Written by Karen Zacarias • Directed by Bruce Miller

Co-produced with The Barksdale Theatre, At Willow Lawn / Part of the Acts of Faith Festival

Voted 2010’s Best New Play by the American Theatre Critics Association, this engaging flight of theatrical magic presented two great women from very different centuries: Emilie du Chatelet, the physicist who was courtesan to Voltaire, and fictional, present-day Olivia, a planetologist who juggles motherhood and her intellectual pursuits. Brimming with enchantment, this fresh and fulfilling story engaged heart and mind.
