Ada and the Engine
by Lauren Gunderson
directed by Jay Louden
Firehouse Theater Company is thrilled to bring to the stage the wonderful play that we were just about to open when the Pandemic caused the shuttering of the theater in spring of 2020.
As the British Industrial Revolution dawns, young Ada Byron Lovelace (daughter of the flamboyant and notorious Lord Byron) sees the boundless creative potential in the “analytic engines” of her friend and soul mate Charles Babbage, inventor of the first mechanical computer. Ada envisions a whole new world where art and information converge—a world she might not live to see. A music-laced story of love, friendship, and the edgiest dreams of the future. Jane Austen meets Steve Jobs in this poignant pre-tech romance heralding the computer age.
As always, your donations are appreciated as we get ready to stoke the flames at Firehouse.
