Presented by Anatomical Heart Productions

Passionate. Brilliant. Defiant. Tonight, 18th century scientific genius Emilie du Châtelet is back and determined to answer the question she died with: love or philosophy, head or heart?

In this highly theatrical rediscovery of one of history’s most intriguing women, Emilie defends her life and loves; and ends up with both a formula and a legacy that permeates history.

Written by Lauren Gunderson and presented by Anatomical Heart Productions, Emilie: La Marquise Du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight showcases Gunderson's skill in writing nuanced characters and witty, engaging dialogue. Gunderson's writing made it's WA debut with Theatre 180's critically-acclaimed season of I and You, demonstrating why she is currently America's most produced living playwright.

"Gunderson possesses an antic imagination that seeks to invent its own rules. As soon as we're drawn in, she shakes us and whisks us 10 or 15 paces ahead." - Los Angeles Times

"The ambitious, non-linear experiment is a highly theatrical romp that literally crackles with electricity." - LA/OC Examiner

"An evening of humour and heartbreak with a powerhouse ending." - BroadwayWorld.com

Written by Lauren Gunderson and directed by Michelle Ezzy by arrangement with ORiGiN™ Theatrical, on behalf of Samuel French, a Concord Theatricals company.
