In light of our current crisis, Firehouse Theater Company is postponing our production of Ada and The Engine. We are eager to bring this beautiful show to the community and look forward to doing so in a few months. We will update you when the date is set.
Thank you for understanding. Please stay safe.
2019-2020 Firehouse Theater Company Season
Ada and the Engine
By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Jay Louden
Postponed for 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.
