The final NHTP 30th Season MainStage production is presented in collaboration with Glass Dove Productions, founded by NHTP alumna Emily Karel. Ada and the Engine is the story of Ada Byron Lovelace, the first computer programmer. Jane Austen meets Steve Jobs in this pre-tech romance!
From Director Catherine Stewart
"I have spent time with women of the 19th Century this season and developed a real affinity for the adventurous, determined, and creative ladies that pioneered in the arts, mathematics, and technology. Ada Byron Lovelace, daughter of the Lothario Lord Byron, is credited as a crucial part of the development of the mathematics that launched the technological revolution over 100 years after her death. The work of Lauren Gunderson, America's most produced living playwright, often revolves around the life and work of women who have pioneered in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math. I admire Gunderson's writing for its swiftness, and the ease of the language that flows from the characters."
