Texas Woman's University's drama program will present Lauren Gunderson's Emilie: La Marquise de Chatelet Defends Her Life Tonight from Feb. 13-17 in the Redbud Theatre Complex.

Madame du Chatelet — a scientist, mathematician, translator of Isaac Newton and the lover of Voltaire — returns from the dead to set her affairs in order. During her return to life, she strives to settle the question: How does a person choose between a life of the heart and the life of the mind?

Patrick Bynane will direct the play.
