The LR Playmakers invite you to Lauren Gunderson's "Ada and the Engine." Produced in arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC serving the Dramatist’s Play Service collection.

In the bustling British Industrial revolution, the age of innovation is underway. Young Ada Byron Lovelace lives in the shadow of her romantic, but scandalous father, the poet Lord Byron, and under the thumb of her overbearing mother. Ada’s freedom lies in her passion for the future and her proficiency in science and mathematics. Enter Mr. Charles Babbage, a genius mathematician with a crazy idea for a machine that can calculate. With the future full of possibility, will their impossible dream become a reality? Pride and Prejudice meets the modern age in a story of time, curiosity and romance.


$8 for general admission or free at the box office with an LR ID or any student ID. Thursday evening is a “Pay What You Can” performance.
