    Legacy of Light

    By Karen Zacarias Directed by Lois Roach New England Premiere - During the Age of Enlightenment, as Sir Isaac Newton was watching apples fall, another brilliant physicist, Emilie du Châtelet finds herself with child. At 42, fearing she will die in childbirth, she races to complete her research and leave her legacy. Meanwhile, present day scientist Olivia, unable to conceive and wondering what she will sacrifice for motherhood, arranges for a surrogate, who pulls together past and present in a stellar collision. This “entertaining new comedy” (Variety) shares unexpected twists of self discovery and two women’s quests for knowledge and love.

      We saw this play last weekend and were delighted with the play, the acting and the information we gleaned from the script. Bravo
