In 1975, the call came, “Wake up Everybody, no more sleeping in bed. No more backward thinking time for thinking ahead.”  Today, we have been conditioned to be constantly vigilant and attentive to everything. The expectation of our outer personae is constantly at odds with who we truly are, and from Generation X to the Millennials of today we are unable to relax.  Ultimately we have insomnia. This is the story of a small southern town whose residents struggle with their own life issues and their attempts to find acceptance on their own terms.

“You are beautiful, so half the human race will be your enemy.

You are brilliant and you will be feared.

You are trusting and you will be betrayed.” – Voltaire

 
Physicist, mathematician, author. Card shark, aristocrat, lover of Voltaire. A woman whose life’s mission became a single equation. Émilie du Châtelet has returned to defend her life, loves, and legacy. To do that, she must learn the fundamental laws of the universe – and of the human soul.

 

Funny and poignant, this play explores the interaction of love, genius, science, art, and gender.

 

Exit Through Eden: We are delighted to have our first collaborative effort with Burning Coal. Founded by Eric Hale in 2012, previous productions include Proof by David Auburn and A Walk in the Woods by Lee Blessing.

Estimated run time: 1.25 hours.
