Event description

Description

Called “hilarious” by WIRED, the award-winning national hit show Truth Values: One Girl’s Romp Through M.I.T.’s Male Math Maze is also a serious exploration of the world of elite mathematics and the challenges women face in math and science. The story follows one woman's adventures as a math Ph.D. student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Bewitched by the formal mathematical notion of Truth, she struggles with the clash of her personal reality in a world that is not binary.

The play features writer/performer and "recovering mathematician” Gioia De Cari creating “refreshing delights of humor, even compassion” (EDGE Media), charmingly bringing to life more than 30 characters, “each rendered on an empty stage that hints at the countless stories similar to hers but untold” (TimeOut New York).

Free admission; open to the community. Reservations strongly encouraged.


“Energetic, intimate, hilarious”
WIRED

“Funny and insightful … replete with hilarious characters … The story is riveting … go see this show!”
Curtain Up

“The entire play is at heart a reflection on truth – especially truths which many people would rather ignore than recognize … The play addresses issues of diversity head on, as well as caring and respect for those who are different from ourselves.”
— K.C. Cole, Professor, University of Southern California School of Journalism and Author of The Universe and The Teacup: The Mathematics of Truth and Beauty
