Ada and the Memory Engine – a world premiere new play
17 October 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 22 November 2015 @ 10:00 pm$28
The Word Premiere of Ada and the Memory Machine
Written by Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Gary Graves
Oct 17–Nov 22
Estranged daughter of the flamboyant and notorious leader of the Romantic Movement, Lord Byron, young Ada Byron only knows her father through his poetry—nothing more than a haunting memory from the past. But Ada sees the future in the “analytic engines” of her friend and soul-mate, Charles Babbage, inventor of the first mechanical computer. A gifted mathematician in her own right, Ada alone foresees the boundless creative potential of Babbage’s engine. As she writes the first computer program, Ada is hit with the bargain of her life – heart or head, love or duty.
With soaring music by The Kilbanes, this true story of a ravishing woman ahead of her time will capture your heart and mind.
