What is the science of love?

Two women scientists, across space and time, wrestle with motherhood in this smart comedy.

About the Show

Two women from different worlds – France in the 1700s and modern-day New Jersey – share the common bonds of motherhood, ambition, balance, and love. This relevant and contemporary comedy takes us through the science of planets, dark matter, philosophy, and fertility, as it explores what women contribute to the worlds of science and family. Legacy of Light juxtaposes the story of Émilie du Châtelet, a mathematician, scientist, and lover of the great 18th-century philosopher Voltaire, who became unexpectedly pregnant at 42, and that of a 21st-century physicist desperately trying to conceive a child.
