Truth Values: One Girl's Romp Through M.I.T.'s Male Math Maze


 

Nonbinary algorithms and sexism collide in Truth Values: One Girl's Romp Through M.I.T.'s Male Math Maze, a painfully funny show about one woman’s struggle to navigate the elite boys club of higher mathematics. Created as a response to former Harvard President Lawrence Summers’s now-infamous suggestion that women are less represented than men in the sciences because of innate gender differences, writer/performer and “recovering mathematician” Gioia De Cari brings to life more than 30 characters in a true-life tale that offers a humorous, scathing, insightful, and ultimately uplifting look at the challenges of being a professional woman in a male-dominated field. Directed by Lincoln Center Director's Lab Member Miriam Eusebio.
 
“De Cari is an appealing and nimble-witted performer … a kind of wide-eyed Alice-in-Numberland.”
— The Boston Globe
 
Winner of an Overall Excellence Award for Best Solo Show at the New York International Fringe Festival, this critically-acclaimed play has been attracting large and enthusiastic crowds across the country, including sold-out shows at the La Jolla Playhouse Potiker Theatre; The Barclay, San Francisco’s Zeum Theatre; Central Square Theatre in Cambridge, MA; Theatre 80 and the Lafayette Street Theatre in NYC; and many others.

 This special engagement is sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America.
 
 “If you see only one play this year about reflexive nonbinary relations, make it this one.”
— Los Angeles Times
