Battling obstacles both grand and trivial in eighteenth-century France, two little-known scientists strive mightily to advance humanity's understanding of life and the universe at the heady height of the Age of Enlightenment.

"What if the great mind of our time belonged not to an inventor or historian, but a playwright? It's a question prompted by each new work from former Seattle resident Glen Berger." -Portland Tribune

"A wager: If Glen Berger isn't one of the American theater scene's most respected writers by the next decade, I'll sit twice through every pretentious wank by every fringe playwright currently trying to emulate him. Berger has what most ambitious young artists would kill for: the ability to be off-the-chart unusual and still say something of universal resonance." -Seattle Weekly

"Glen Berger's work feels like what an entire generation of playwrights have been struggling to write." -The Stranger, Seattle

"Along with Kushner and Stoppard, Berger is only a handful of playwrights of wit and vocabulary creating works of dramatic weight and size. Although they take political positions and tackle cosmic questions to which no one has the answers, these plays never abandon theatrical flair and entertainment value." -Windy City Times, Chicago

"Berger is one of those today finding great humor in hardships, expanding and redefining tragedy, while claiming this form for a new generation." -The Columbian, Portland
