The drama program at WWU begins the 2019-2020 season with Ada and the Engine a recent offering from popular playwright Lauren Gunderson. 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. Performances will be November 9, 14, 16 at 8 p.m. and November 10, 17 at 2 p.m. on the Donnie Rigby Stage in the Canaday Technology Center.
