The Studio Theatre - Ada & The Engine

By Lauren Gunderson
The difference between zero and one is the whole world.

Set in the Victorian era among the houses of intellectual elites, we find Ada, a young female mathematician whose invention of binary code shapes our modern world today. Ada and the Engine, written by America’s most produced living playwright, Lauren Gunderson, composes the story of Ada Byron Lovelace, poet Lord Byron’s daughter. This lyrical play details the life of Ada as she struggles between the traditional demands of her mother and the pull of her mathematical ambition. Ada sees the creative potential in “The Engine” created by her mentor, the scholar Charles Babbage. As pressures mount and feelings grow, these two form a partnership that will change the course of the future. Ada and the Engine is a music-laced story of love and friendship. Jane Austen meets Steve Jobs in this poignant pre-tech romance heralding the computer age.
