A woman’s journey finding her way in the male-dominated field of astronomy is the focus of an upcoming theatre production at Linfield College. “Silent Sky” by Lauren Gunderson sheds light on the forgotten women scientists in history.
Steam-powered math, music and romance are at the heart of the upcoming Linfield College Theatre production, “Ada and the Engine.”
The production features the full-length play by Lauren Gunderson, “America’s most popular playwright,” as Daniel Pollack-Pelzner, the Ronni Lacroute Chair in Shakespeare Studies at Linfield College, has dubbed her in The New Yorker. This year, Linfield Theatre’s 98th season, features the plays of Gunderson.
Daniel Pollack-Pelzner, the Ronni Lacroute Chair in Shakespeare Studies at Linfield College, will present the keynote address at opening convocation on Friday, Aug. 25, at 9:30 a.m. in the Ted Wilson Gymnasium at Linfield College. The talk is entitled “Digital Shakespeare.”
