See it if Never heard of Emilie du Chatelet, but what a character! Lovely costume drama of 18th century French aristocratic intellectuals.

Don't see it if David Beck's music at the piano/harpsichord added atmosphere to the play. Jonathan Tindle was a deliciously arrogant Voltaire. Read more

Absorbing, Ambitious, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you would like to see how women scientists have been overlooked in history and particularly the obstacles faced during the Enlightenment

Don't see it if You find Newton, Voltaire, Leibniz and their concerns too esoteric-much of play is theoretical discussion of physics, rest is romantic tngl
